A nor'easter storm was billed as Maryland's first potential snow event of the season, but if any flakes fell, they were only in flurries, according to National Weather Service reports. No reports of snow were posted by the weather service's Baltimore/Washington forecast office. Forecasters there  said Wednesday the storm tracked slightly too far east  to affect central Maryland, and with a narrow band of precipitation to its west. The weather service's Mount Holly, N.J., office, which covers the Philadelphia area including northern Eastern Shore counties in Maryland,  reported anywhere from a trace of snow to a foot  of it. Traces were measured just over the Maryland/Delaware border in Bear, Del., and further up Interstate 95 in Wilmington, Del. But no snow was reported in any Maryland counties.
