AccuWeather.com is forecasting a relatively quiet Atlantic hurricane season, predicting a dozen named storms, including two major hurricanes. The weather service is anticipating five hurricanes in all, and seven tropical storms. That is about average, but a drop in storm activity compared with 2011. Last year, there were 19 named storms, four of them developing into major hurricanes. The predictions cast a slightly more active storm season compared with another forecast released earlier this month , by  The Tropical Meteorology Project at Colorado State University.

The groundhog won't give his prognosis for spring's arrival for a few days, but AccuWeather.com meteorologists already foresee six more weeks of winter in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. The forecasting company's spring outlook calls for cold outbreaks and possible snow storms to continue into March. "For the next six weeks in the Northeast, we're going to be dealing with some pretty good cold coming down out of northern Canada," AccuWeather.com Lead Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok said in a statement.

Northeast cities from Baltimore to New York could be in for a snowy winter, according to AccuWeather forecasters. The weather service's winter 2012-2013 forecast calls for cold weather and large systems of moisture to converge, dumping above-average snow totals along the East Coast. The timing is expected to be in January and February. El Nino, the global climate pattern expected to develop by the end of September, could contribute heavily, according to the forecast. It typically causes a strong southern branch of the jet stream across the country, which can often phase together with cold air and the northern branch of the jet stream around the mid-Atlantic, causing major winter storms.

When Rob Rogers woke up the morning of Dec. 8 and looked at an ominous weather forecast predicting several inches of snow or the threat of freezing rain, he knew exactly where he wanted to be. The 24-year-old Hampden resident rushed to his computer, navigated to Stubhub.com and saw that ticket prices for that afternoon's game between the Ravens and Minnesota Vikings were dropping. He snapped up tickets for himself and three friends and threw on long underwear, warm clothes, a winter jacket and, of course, his No. 82 Torrey Smith jersey and was off to M&T Bank Stadium.

Opening Day is a week away, and little has changed in AccuWeather's long-range forecast -- the Orioles could be meeting the Minnesota Twins under drizzly skies. But the outlook isn't unanimous. Next Friday is still a few days outside the National Weather Service's forecasts, but AccuWeather is calling for a high of 61 with "a few showers" in the area. That's slightly less wet than the forecast looked 10 days out. Weather Underground predicts a zero percent chance of precipitation and a high of 59. The Weather Channel, meanwhile, is also calling for clear skies, but it is predicting a high of 69 degrees.

AccuWeather.com released its spring weather outlook this morning, and it includes seasonable weather that one doesn't need a meteorology degree to predict: winter storm chances for the East Coast in February and March and milder temperatures not until April and May. First, winter might stick around for another six weeks after Groundhog Day, long range AccuWeather forecaster Paul Pastelok said. A couple of winter storms could strike during the last month of meteorological winter and the first month of meteorological spring, he said.

This weekend's warm up could be enough to threaten a record by Monday, with temperatures expected to near 90 degrees. AccuWeather is calling for 90 degrees Monday, which would be enough to tie a record set in 2002. The National Weather Service had been predicting the low-80s for Monday as recently as a day ago, but now the forecast is calling for the mid-80s. Obviously, things could change in four days. Regardless, 90-degree temperatures would be a first for Baltimore in 2012 despite the mid-March wave of warmth.

We have a mystery on our hands - and an error to report - here on the Maryland Weather blog. I've received questions from astute reader Bob West in Ellicott City about dramatic fluctuation in Chesapeake Bay water temperatures , at least according to the Sun's daily weather page, found on the back of the sports section. Until now, I didn't have an answer, other than to guess that the page must be wrong. While Wednesday's page read 36 degrees, as measured in the Inner Harbor, the true reading was more like 57, I'm told by the National Weather Service and AccuWeather, which provides the data used on the weather page.

Even the arrival of spring Wednesday isn't erasing the possibility of snow in the forecast for the next few days. Forecasters are keeping an eye on two storms - snow from the northwest, and a weaker rain storm from the south - that could affect the mid Atlantic by late Sunday night or Monday, though it's too early to tell what, if any, impact there will be in the Baltimore area. Accuweather lays out the early potential here , with some parts of Maryland possibly getting a wintry mix or heavy rain.

While it may be , those traveling to the Boston area on Saturday for the Ravens game on Sunday will see more weather action from a fast-moving storm coming from the Midwest that will dump snow and ice along the Northeast. According to AccuWeather (who also provided the map above):  "The storm has the potential to put down a half a foot of the white stuff along a swath from northern and central Pennsylvania and the southern tier of New York to New York City onward into part of the Massachusetts coast.

Humidity has been at fall-like levels at the start of this week in the Baltimore area and much of the East, and while it could creep up starting Wednesday, an overall cooler weather pattern is forecast to carry into the first half of August. Dew points were hovering around 50 degrees for a second straight day in Baltimore on Tuesday -- a level more common in September or October. Dew points factor in both temperature and humidity levels, and typically sit in the mid-60s or higher during summer in Baltimore.

AccuWeather.com is predicting another active Atlantic hurricane season, particularly for the U.S. coastline. While the Pennsylvania-based meteorology company is calling for fewer storms in all, with 16 tropical storms versus 19 in 2012, AccuWeather's season outlook suggests four storms could become major hurricanes, compared with one in 2012. AccuWeather expects three storms to make landfall in the U.S., compared with four in 2012. "After a devastating blow to the East from Superstorm Sandy in October of 2012, residents and homeowners on the Atlantic coast should anticipate another active season in 2013," the forecast warns.

A rainy Sunday morning will hopefully clear out in time for the Orioles to host the New York Yankees for Game 1 of the American League Division Series between the two teams. A weekend chill will stick around, though. The National Weather Service is forecasting rain for most of the day Sunday, but partly cloudy skies by game time at 6 p.m. Highs are expected only in the 50s on Sunday, with temperatures likely in the upper 40s for much of the game. AccuWeather is predicting the rain to clear out around 7 p.m., while the Weather Channel expects a lingering chance of scattered showers until 9 p.m., but the bulk of the rain moving out by 5 p.m. Monday, clear skies are expected for Game 2. Game time temperatures are expected in the lower 50s. No significant winds are in the forecast for either game.

Despite recent indications from climate forecasters that El Nino is looking less likely for the winter, AccuWeather is holding firm predictions of above-normal snowfall for the Northeast because of a persistent weather pattern. Severe weather forecaster Henry Margusity points to the repeated blocking patterns that could continue to dominate throught the winter. The patterns involve high pressure settled over the northern Atlantic and often produce storms like the nor'easter that dumped snow on areas recovering from Hurricane Sandy.
