Inch of snow is possible

December 05, 2007|By FRANK ROYLANCE

Marylanders can expect some snow later today as an "Alberta Clipper" sweeps across the region. But forecasters posted no snow advisories for the metro area, and no panic seemed warranted.

Forecasters expected snow to start around sunrise west of the mountains, reaching the I-95 corridor in late morning or early afternoon. High temperatures today should reach the mid-30s, reducing possible accumulation on the roads.

An inch of snow is possible during the day, with another half-inch or less likely in the evening. Snowfall today at BWI would mark the first measurable snow event of the season, and the fifth snow on a Dec. 5 in the past six years.

The wintry weather should moderate for the weekend, with highs near 50 and showers possible Sunday.
