A nor’easter is set to hit Maryland on Wednesday with rain and wind before blowing north toward the battered New Jersey coastline.

While forecasters continue to monitor the exact track of the storm, Accuweather meteorologist Rob Miller said Saturday the quick-moving storm is expected to bring rain and wind as far west as Interstate 95 through Wednesday night. Thursday could see lingering showers with breezy conditions, Miller said.

For now, Miller said Baltimore and the Eastern Shore are likely to feel the impacts of the storm, but the conditions could be felt throughout Central Maryland into Northern Virginia if it pushes west. The storm could also deliver a few inches of snow to Hagerstown and parts of central Pennsylvania.

“The track remains uncertain,” he said. New England is expected to take the brunt of the storm.

Temperatures will hang in low 50s into next week, dropping into the 30s at night, Miller said. By Monday morning, the temperature could be near freezing.

“We could be looking at frost and freezing on Monday and Tuesday,” Miller said.
