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.

For the first time in 2014, Seahawk Stadium will play host to something other than snow. No. 18 St. Mary's (3-4) will tangle with Albright (2-3) on Saturday in what will be the team's home opener in St. Mary's City. The Seahawks were scheduled to play host to Muhlenberg on March 8, which would have been their first home contest after four consecutive games on the road. But a storm that dumped 5 inches made Seahawk Stadium unplayable, and both schools agreed to play the game at Muhlenberg.

Spring starts tomorrow and brings a brief return to seasonable temperatures, but an echo of a winter that won't go away may not be far behind. Early next week, climate forecasters predict another in a series of intrusions of frigid Arctic air that has made for a brutal winter for the eastern United States. Temperature outlook maps from the Climate Prediction Center show an icy blue over the right half of the country, signifying a near certainty of below-normal temperatures. As the cold air dominates once again, there is a chance some moisture could move through, bringing more snow.

Opening statements in the case of a Naval Academy midshipman charged with sexually assaulting a classmate were delayed by Monday's snowstorm. The federal government closed in the Washington area on Monday, including the Washington Navy Yard where the court-martial is taking place. Midshipman Joshua Tate of Nashville is charged with aggravated sexual assault and making false statements. On Friday, he chose to be tried by a judge rather than a jury of Navy and Marine Corps officers.

A rare St. Patrick's Day snowfall made this month the snowiest March since 1993, spreading more than 7 inches of snow across much of the region. But while the snow closed schools and the federal government for another day and disrupted some travel, it didn't stop revelers ready to move on to spring and celebrate the patron saint of Ireland. "It keeps them from going to work, but it doesn't keep people from going out drinking," said Jack Busick of Fallston as he made his way toward Sean Bolan's Irish Pub in Bel Air along with his wife, Cathy, and daughter, Elizabeth.

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. The heaviest snow totals were expected south and west of Baltimore, with bands of heavy snow overnight.

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.

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.

Snow is looking to be likely on St. Patrick's Day, but whether it does much accumulating remains a tricky call. Here is what forecasters are saying about the event, expected to start late Sunday and last into Monday: The National Weather Service's Baltimore/Washington office isn't yet suggesting any possible accumulation totals, but suggests cold air is likely to move in overnight turning a mix of rain and sleet into snow. The weather service's Weather Prediction Center in College Park suggests a 40 percent chance that most of Maryland will see at least 4 inches of snow, however, and a 10 percent chance of 8 inches or more.

Instead of wintry precipitation, Maryland could see severe storms Wednesday as a potent weather system moves across the country. Storms were expected to develop as a strong cold front moves across the country, meeting relatively mild and moist air building over the region Tuesday and early Wednesday. Highs could reach the upper 60s by late Wednesday afternoon before the front moves through. A chance of storms was expected between midday and early evening, according to the National Weather Service.
