Storm approaching Maryland could bring weekend snow
A storm forecast to dump snow and ice across the Midwest and Northeast could bring wintry precipitation to Maryland at the end of the week. Early forecasts suggest some wintry precipitation is possible Friday night and Saturday as a storm system affects much of the country. Snow is likely across the Great Lakes region, with a mix of snow, ice and rain possible from Chicago to Pittsburgh to Baltimore, according to AccuWeather.com. But what areas get snow versus mixed precipitation will depend on the exact path of the storm, which isn’t yet clear. For now, the National Weather Service is forecasting 40%-50% chances for rain and snow showers Friday night and Saturday, with temperatures ranging from the upper 20s overnight to the mid-40s Saturday afternoon. Cold air is forecast to be in place ahead of the storm system, with highs forecast in the upper 30s Friday.
