Forecasters are watching intently for any chance for more snow in Maryland, but there are no sure signs of it in the next week or so. Meteorologists have been eyeing a pattern that could bring Arctic air southward, making temperatures cold enough to support snow. But there has been less certainty about what kind of moisture systems could come along with it. The latest extended forecast discussion from the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center in College Park calls for "a couple quick-hitting winter waves" that could bring snow or ice from the Mississippi Valley to the northern mid-Atlantic next week.

Major league officials were relieved when the Orioles and Royals were able to play Game 1 of the American League Championship Series at Camden Yards in spite of a constant threat of rain. They might not be so lucky on Monday night. The forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain during the day and a 90 percent chance of rain on Monday night in the Kansas City area. If Mother Nature makes it impossible to get the game in, the same scenario will apply that was in play in Baltimore.

Meteorologists are closely watching an expected severe weather outbreak in the Ohio and Tennessee valleys Wednesday to see if it might hold together and bring damaging winds and hail to Maryland. Storms could bring isolated tornadoes and damaging wind gusts and hail across Kentucky, according to the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla. Smaller threats of severe wind and hail extend into Maryland, according to the center's forecasts. Tornado watches were issued Wednesday afternoon from Missouri to West Virginia.

Even as winter-weary Marylanders continued to dig out from under the weekend's blizzard, weather forecasters warned that another storm is bearing down on them Tuesday and Wednesday with at least 5 more inches of snow. "We're not looking, certainly, at anything as significant as what we just had. But we are looking at the potential for winter-storm-watch-criteria snowfall," said National Weather Service meteorologist Bryan Jackson. Those criteria start at 5 inches, and that's as far as the weather service could go on Sunday.

Hurricane Isaac was battering the greater New Orleans area Wednesday morning , but meanwhile, forecasters are watching two other developing storms. One doesn't appear likely to impact land. Wind speeds became sufficiently strong in one storm late Tuesday that it earned the name Tropical Storm Kirk. Kirk was about 2,000 miles east-northeast of the Virgin Islands as of about 5 a.m. Wednesday with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. Kirk isn't expected to make landfall, but rather spin toward the North Atlantic before dissipating in cold waters, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Forecasters are lowering expectations of a nor'easter's impact in Maryland, canceling a winter weather advisory for northern Baltimore and Harford counties as of 5 p.m. The advisory was in effect through 1 a.m. Thursday, with an inch of snow expected. The advisory previously included Baltimore City, southern Baltimore and Carroll counties and extended through the night to 6 a.m. Thursday. Cecil and Kent counties remain under a winter weather advisory. But the storm has tracked slightly more east than expected, and with a tight gradient of precipitation on its west side, the moisture isn't reaching further west than the Delmarva peninsula and northeastern Maryland, said Jared Klein, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.

Forecasters have been watching models that show a stormy pattern emerging next week, but some don't expect cold air will stretch far enough south to bring snow to Maryland. It's too early to predict a precise reach of any storm, but a "well organized winter coastal low" appears likely by Tuesday, according to the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center. The chances are best in the northeast, according to the center's forecast discussion. The pattern would bring a change from largely calm weather for the East Coast so far this month.

Maryland is now facing a $405 million revenue shortfall over this year and next, largely the result of sluggish job growth, stagnant incomes and a weak housing market, state officials reported Wednesday. Five years after the official end of the recession, Maryland continues to confront fiscal trouble. This latest shortfall will force Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration and the General Assembly to make deeper cuts than previously expected to balance the state's roughly $40 billion budget.
