A few inches of snow might accumulate in the Baltimore metropolitan area late tonight and possibly through Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service said.Fear not, say the federal prognosticators, for the precipitation should change to sleet and eventually to rain by tomorrow.Ken Shaver, a forecaster stationed at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, said an "inch or two" might fall before rising temperatures change the snow to slush."There might be more of an accumulation north and west of the city, but the major part of any storm will be seen in Western Maryland where there is a winter watch in effect," Mr. Shaver said.

More than 7 inches of snow fell across parts of the region by Monday, making it the snowiest March here since 1993. As of 8 a.m., the National Weather Service reported 7.9 inches of snow at BWI Airport, the point of record for Baltimore. The record for March 17 is 5 inches, set in 1931, but it was unlikely to be broken with most of BWI's snowfall coming before midnight Monday. Other snow totals included 9.5 inches near Elkridge and Pasadena, 9 inches in Severna Park, 8.5 inches in Ellicott City, 7.5 inches near Oella, 7.6 inches in White Marsh, 7.2 inches in Highlandtown, 7 inches in Phoenix, 6.5 inches in Eldersburg and 6 inches near Bel Air.

No luck for those hoping we'd seen the last of winter — the Baltimore region could get as much as 4 inches of snow by St. Patrick's Day. A mix of rain and snow is expected to begin falling around 7 p.m. Sunday, changing to all snow by mid-evening and continuing through early afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. The heaviest snow is forecast to fall after midnight through early Monday morning. The weather service has backed off a little in how much snow the metro area could see, downgrading its forecast from a winter storm watch packing up to five inches of white stuff to a winter weather advisory instead.

With cold air firmly in place, and a storm gathering to our south, Marylanders are bracing today for what could be the season's first measurable snowfall, and potentially the biggest snowstorm in nearly three years. "Some could receive a little more, some a little less. But on average it appears likely enough the area will be receiving somewhere in the ballpark of 5 inches," said meteorologist Howard Silverman, of the National Weather Service's Sterling, Va., forecast office. A developing storm system was expected to move across the Southeast today and reorganize off the Carolina coast, generating snow and ice from Georgia to New England today and tomorrow.

Baltimore-area residents awoke to 2 to 10 inches of snow yesterday, depending on where they live. Carroll County received the most: 10 inches in Manchester and 8 inches in Westminster. Baltimore County had 6 to 7 inches and Columbia and Bel Air registered 4 inches. Although this has been a cold winter -- December was the seventh coldest on record since 1871 -- the area has had less snowfall than normal, the National Weather Service says. At Baltimore-Washington International Airport, which has typically recorded 10 inches of snow or more by this point, 3.1 inches -- including 1.9 yesterday -- have fallen this winter.

Meteorologist Rich Hitchens was monitoring a winter storm headed for Baltimore on three computer screens last night. "It's on its way," he said of a warm-air system from the Gulf of Mexico on a collision course with the cold air over the Mid-Atlantic region. The storm could bolster this month's snow total significantly. It is expected to blanket Central Maryland with 6 to 10 inches of snow before midnight, when it would push north, Hitchens said from the National Weather Service office in Sterling, Va. Forecasters declared a heavy snow warning for 24 hours starting at 1 a.m. today but said the bulk of the snow would fall between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. The new snow was unlikely to set records, but even a little would push Baltimore over the average of 6.4 inches for February snowfall.

Jupiter and Venus are in close conjunction this weekend, low in the southeast just before sunrise. A crescent moon joins them Sunday. It's a pretty farewell to January, which saw just 2.4 inches of snow at BWI Marshall Airport. Temperatures were 3 degrees above long-term averages for Baltimore. That masked the wild swings, from 70 degrees Jan. 7 and 8 to the low of 8 degrees on the 21st. But smile. We're still 11 percent to the good on our heating demand for the season.

The National Weather Service is forecasting up to 8-10 inches of snow on top of a layer of ice across Central Maryland by Monday night, with sleet and freezing rain expected Sunday night, turning to heavy snow into Monday. Forecasters remain uncertain how quickly precipitation might switch from sleet and freezing rain to snow, which could affect where the heaviest snowfall accumulations occur. That could also affect how much ice might accumulate before any snow falls. Precipitation was expected to start as rain Sunday evening.

This weekend's weather brought up to an inch of snow to some parts of Baltimore, and the area may be on deck for more wintry weather this week. Though it is too early to project its impact, a low-pressure system off the southeast coast of the U.S. is due to arrive around Wednesday night and remain through Thursday, National Weather Service meteorologist Carl Barnes said Sunday evening. Until then, anticipate sunny but cold conditions, he said. "It's a pretty chilly air mass we're going to have over top of us," he said.

On the heels of a wintry weather system that dropped less snow than expected in the Baltimore region Monday, a new batch of storm watches were set for Tuesday night into Wednesday, with a quarter of an inch of ice possible northwest of the city. Freezing rain is forecast in northern Baltimore County and Carroll County, with a wintry mix expected along the Interstate 95 corridor. Overnight lows are forecast a few degrees below freezing. The system marks a wet and wintry weather pattern that began with Monday's mix of rain and snow and is expected to continue into next week, though with weather warming relative to last month's polar outbreaks, there has been more uncertainty over what precipitation to expect.

This weekend's warm weather was only a tease, it seems - two storms this week could bring more than 5 inches of rain and snow in parts of the Baltimore region, according to the National Weather Service. A "quick-hitting" rain storm Sunday night was expected to turn into snow early Monday morning and potentially snarl the morning commute, said Dan Hofmann, a meteorologist with the weather service in Sterling, Va. More than 5 inches are expected in parts of northern Baltimore County, Carroll County, eastern Howard County and Western Maryland in Monday's storm, according to the National Weather Service.

As snow started to fall across Maryland, highway officials urged people to stay off the roads, schools and offices closed, and flights were delayed. By early afternoon, multiple accidents and backups were reported throughout the area. The National Weather Service forecast calls for up to 10 inches of snow in some outer suburban areas and up to eight inches in Baltimore, with a wind chill as low as 10 degrees below zero at night. Snow will be heaviest in the late morning into the afternoon, but it will be constant, according to the weather service.

The Baltimore region could see the first snow of 2014 - possibly a couple of inches - beginning around the afternoon rush hour Thursday, according to a National Weather Service forecast. It could start as a rain-snow mix midafternoon Thursday but should change to snow in the evening, most likely 1 to 3 inches across the area. But Greg Schoor, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va., said that it's unlikely to significantly hamper the evening commute because the snow probably will melt when it hits the ground, which will remain a few degrees warmer than the air. "Flakes will start to fly Thursday afternoon, but we may not see any accumulation until after 8 p.m.," he said.
