The massive snowstorm that blanketed Baltimore and much of the northeast in February 2010 garnered the name "Snowmageddon" from social media users suffering from extreme cabin fever. This winter, how about storms named Brutus, Iago, Helen or even Q? Those are some of the names on a list the Weather Channel released Tuesday to assign to snow and ice storms during winter 2012-2013. The channel created the list to "better communicate the threat and the timing of the significant impacts that accompany these events," according to a post on its website . Weather Channel forecasters plan to name systems no more than three days before they are expected to impact major urban areas.

An inch or two of snow is expected across the Baltimore area Tuesday, with 2-4 inches possible in parts of Carroll, Baltimore and Harford counties. A storm is expected to move up from the Carolinas, bringing precipitation from the southern Appalachians to New England. While a significant snowstorm is expected in Boston and on Cape Cod, the mid-Atlantic was expected to be spared of the heaviest precipitation. Much of the snow could also fall while the sun is still up, which would likely limit accumulation to grassy surfaces.

Severe weather has quieted, so there's not much else for meteorologists to chat about but a few guessing games. And AccuWeather severe weather blogger Henry Margusity's hunch is that there is a link between this month's heat waves across the U.S. and the climatic phenomenon known as the North Atlantic Oscillation. The NAO, which measures the atmospheric pressure difference between the typical low pressure system near Iceland and high pressure south of the Azores, hit its lowest point since 1950 in June, an AccuWeather reader pointed out to Margusity.

After snow, sleet and freezing rain earlier this week, the National Weather Service said snow and other wintry precipitation is likely again on Saturday and Sunday. It is expected to be sunny but cold in the Baltimore area on Thursday, with high temperatures hovering around freezing and strong northwest breezes at around 10 to 14 miles per hour, NWS said. Winds will slow overnight Thursday and temperatures will drop to about 26 degrees. It will be somewhat warmer on Friday, with forecasters predicting a high temperature of 40 degrees and a low around freezing.

The storms that have ravaged Oklahoma and other Plains states the past few days could reach Maryland and the mid-Atlantic by Wednesday and Thursday, albeit weakened, according to the National Weather Service. The region faces slight risks of severe weather Wednesday and Thursday as a cold front moves toward the hot, humid air that has been settled over the region this week. The weather is still going to get more muggy before the cold front arrives, with highs possible in the lower 90s Wednesday and dew points nearing 70 degrees in Baltimore.

It could be wet or an icy mess for the Ravens/Vikings game Sunday, but which type of precipitation falls will be a game-time decision. Forecasters remain mixed on where to pin down the lines between rain, ice and sleet or snow for a system expected to pass over the region throughout Sunday. Generally, the further north and west of the Interstate 95 corridor, the more likely frozen precipitation is. But in Baltimore, forecasting models have gone back and forth between giving the city a cold rain or a messy, wintry mix. As of Thursday afternoon, the National Weather Service was predicting temperatures slightly above freezing on Sunday, with wind chills in the 20s and snow in the morning, turning to a wintry mix and eventually rain or freezing rain.

After a brief warm-up this weekend, chilly temperatures are expected to delay spring weather until about mid-April, according to climate forecasters. March is meanwhile all but assured to be more of a fourth month of winter than a first month of spring. Normal temperatures by this time of year are around 60 degrees, but that is about as warm as it's supposed to get from Friday through Monday. After that, highs are forecast to fall back below normal. As AccuWeather.com's Henry Margusity explains , the Arctic Oscillation, a climate pattern that sends cold polar air south, is showing no signs of diverting from a pattern that chills the eastern U.S. The pattern could mean another spring dusting of snow for the nation's midsection and New England early next week (though not Maryland)

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.

The latest forecasts for a post-Election Day nor'easter bring a lot more of what isn't needed -- heavy rain along the Atlantic coast and possible snow in Western Maryland. The boundary between the two could fall right around Baltimore. Models show the biggest risk for heavy snow inland , from Western Maryland into eastern Pennsylvania and eastern New York on Wednesday and Thursday. Forecast maps for Wednesday show snowfall  possibly stretching from the mountains to Frederick and Carroll counties in Maryland, approaching the Baltimore area.

The broken tree limbs and large puddles remain from Monday's storm, but forecasters are already looking ahead to more severe weather chances Wednesday and Thursday. Maryland is included in areas with about 15 percent chances of severe storms both afternoons, according to the Storm Prediction Center. On Wednesday, the prime risk for damaging winds and large hail is in the Ohio Valley. Parts of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio are being estimated to stand as much as a 45 percent chance of severe weather -- among the highest odds the storm center will assign a day in advance.

It's not winter yet, but snow could soon be making its first appearance in the Baltimore weather forecast. Meteorologists are watching the possibility of an inch or two of snow around Wednesday of next week, as one key forecast model shows a potential snowfall from the Midwest to the mid-Atlantic. Of course, it's still a bit far out for such a forecast to be considered reliable, particularly at this time of year. Some weather news outlets began reporting hints of snow in the long-term forecast early this week, stoking some controversy among the weather media over whether such a prediction is responsible or sensationalistic.

Forecasters are watching an expected outbreak of severe weather from Illinois to Maryland that some are likening to last June's derecho; one meteorologist predicted it would be a "multi billion dollar storm" causing massive power outages. Storms were developing in Illinois and Wisconsin early Wednesday evening, bringing tornado threats from there through Indiana and into Ohio. Meteorologists say conditions could be conducive for those storms to strengthen into a massive squall line packing up to 70 mph winds, large hail and heavy rain.
