It could be winter's last gasp. Or a wet and sloppy welcome to spring 2006, which arrived just after lunchtime yesterday. Whatever you label it, forecasters said the daylong snow, sleet and freezing rain they're expecting in Baltimore today doesn't look like much to worry about - an inch or two on the grass and little or no accumulation on the streets - barring any surprises. Two to 4 inches are possible from Washington County west, with a possible impact on the morning commute. "It is March, and there's no shock or surprise about this kind of weather through March," said Jackie Hale, a spokeswoman at the National Weather Service's Sterling, Va., forecast office.

It is hard not to give in to despair. In the hours since bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, forever marking in blood a day that celebrates spring, our nation's founding and the joy of the human body, there has been a lot of talk about resilience. About the resilience of the American people, of Boston people, of running people. "Boston is a tough and resilient town," President Barack Obama told the country. "So are its people. " The Boston Globe's columnists are defiant, too. "Tomorrow, this city is going to get up and live its life," wrote Farah Stockman.

A wintry mix is expected this weekend with snow flurries beginning early Saturday, turning into rain, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service said. A high-pressure system is expected to bring cold air into the area, as temperatures dip to a low around 32 degrees Friday night. The system is expected to be followed by a low-pressure system, bringing in higher temperatures and cutting chances for any snow accumulation, said meteorologist Carrie Suffern. Temperatures Saturday are expected to reach the low 40s, bringing "all rain Saturday," she said.
