The beautiful weekend weather just couldn't last. While clear, sunny skies remain over New England, a low-pressure system spinning up from the Southeast has brought clouds over the mid-Atlantic. An area of high pressure that dominated from late last week through the weekend is now centered near Maine, slipping off the coast. The area had blocked clouds from moving into the region. "ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END...AND SO WE SAY FAREWELL TO THE FINE WX OF THE PAST FIVE DAYS," National Weather Service meteorologists wrote in a morning forecast discussion.

A flood watch is in effect across much of the Baltimore region starting at 6 p.m., with two inches of rain possible overnight into Thursday morning. The National Weather Service issued the watch through late Wednesday night, cautioning that heavy rain could cause flooding in low-lying and urban areas. It is in effect for Baltimore City and Baltimore, Howard, Anne Arundel and Harford counties. An inch or two of rain is forecast, with higher amounts possible in some areas, depending on where the bands of heaviest precipitation set up. A high pressure system is moving off of northern New England as a low pressure system moves in from the Atlantic and up the coast.

A cloudy day with temperatures in the mid-40s is expected in the Baltimore area Wednesday, with rain arriving by the afternoon and possibly turning to a wintry mix, according to the National Weather Service. Rain is expected to start around midday but should remain light, with about a quarter of an inch forecast. The precipitation could turn wintry by late in the evening with less than an inch expected in the Baltimore area but a few inches possible close to the Mason-Dixon Line in Carroll, Baltimore and Harford counties.

White could be the new green this St. Patrick's Day. A winter weather system moving into the Mid-Atlantic brought the potential of up to six inches of snow, beginning just in time for the Monday commute. A winter storm warning was in effect for Anne Arundel, Howard and southern Baltimore counties, as well as points south, through 2 p.m. Monday. A winter weather advisory was in effect for Carroll, Frederick, Harford and northern Baltimore counties, also through 2 p.m. The National Weather Service called for three to six inches of accumulation under the storm warning, and two to five inches in those areas covered by the advisory.

One to two inches of rain is possible Sunday and precipitation will continue into Monday, according to the National Weather Service. On Saturday night, a cold front that's associated with an upper level low pressure system is expected to come into the Baltimore metro area and bring precipitation from the Great Lakes region, said Calvin Meadows, a meteorological technician at the NWS Sterling office. When a surface level low pressure system that is moving up the Atlantic coast from the Carolinas reaches the Baltimore area Sunday afternoon, it will trigger widespread and heavy precipitation, he said.

Hurricane season is off to an early start in the Pacific, but not quite yet in the Atlantic. The season's first tropical depression has formed in the Eastern Pacific, about 645 miles from the Mexican coast. A low pressure system in the Eastern Atlantic, meanwhile, is unlikely to become Subtropical Storm Alberto, according to the National Hurricane Center. The formal hurricane season doesn't start for another two weeks. Look out for an article soon on the hurricane season outlook.

Sandy is no ordinary hurricane. A remarkable configuration of weather systems are tugging on the storm system as it slogs up the eastern seaboard, slowing and widening the cyclone. A full moon will drag tides up the shore just as the storm whips the sea. And an area of low pressure is expected to pump in cold air from the west that could lead to several inches of snow in Western Maryland. "It's a very, very rare storm, and the way it is going to interact, the confluence of things coming together late in the season, is something we'll be taking a look at for years to come," said Steve Zubrick, science and operations officer at the National Weather Service's Sterling, Va., office.

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.

Pleasant weather is in the forecast Thursday before rain arrives overnight, though temperatures are still expected to be well below normal, according to the National Weather Service. Sunshine and calm winds are expected during the day, with highs in the lower 50s. Clouds could start moving in by the afternoon, bringing rain expected to start overnight. Rain is expected to continue into Friday morning but to taper off quickly in the Baltimore area as a low pressure system is pushed off the mid-Atlantic coast.

Clouds were expected to gradually move out through the day, with temperatures rising to the lower- to mid-60s. Northeast winds of about 10 mph were expected. Clouds could increase again overnight Tuesday as a weak low pressure system moves in Wednesday.
