Winter's first snowfall forecast for area today

The Baltimore area can expect its first snowfall today, thanks to a storm making its way from the Gulf Coast.

National Weather Service forecasters said they expect 1 to 3 inches of snow to accumulate in Baltimore by midnight. North and west of the city could get between 2 and 4 inches. The storm should begin by late morning as rain, forecasters said, then mix with or change to snow by afternoon.
