Weekend forecasts indicate chance of snow

March 23, 2011|By Liz F. Kay, The Baltimore Sun

Spring may have arrived in Maryland, but we might not have seen the last of winter.

The weekend's forecasts include a chance of snow, according to National Weather Service forecasts. However, the confidence level for such long-term predictions is kind of low, warn officials at the weather service's Sterling, Va., office.

There's a 30 percent chance of rain on Saturday, which changes into a 50 percent rain or snow overnight. The chance of rain or snow decreases back to 30 percent again on Sunday.

Residents should keep an eye on the forecasts and look for updates as the week progresses, said Calvin Meadows, a meteorological technician.

"Accumulation, if we do have any snow, does not appear to be likely," he said.

On Wednesday, forecasts call for some patchy drizzle throughout the morning. There's also a slight risk of thunderstorms for much of the Baltimore area that could develop this afternoon and evening as a cold front approaches, Meadows said.
