Maryland Weather: Snow Storm Pushing Across Maryland Sunday Morning

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory from 1p.m. Sunday to 1a.m on Monday for most of Maryland.

The First Alert Weather Team is tracking the storm as it moves into our region.

This advisory comes as we are already dealing with bone chilling conditions.


That would be chilly enough but unfortunately the brisk north wind will make it feel like the upper teens.

Another frigid night is in store, with a forecast low of 15° for Baltimore.

Sunday and Monday's alerts are because of significant impacts due to a winter storm.

A Nor'Easter will bring snow to northern and central Maryland on Sunday afternoon.

It looks like flakes will arrive in the Baltimore area around 3 or 4.

Snowfall rates of 1-2" an hour are possible.

Western Maryland is looking at accumulations between 6-12", with some higher totals possible where the heaviest bad set up.

That's because they will see an all snow, or at least mainly snow event.

Totals drop off further east because warm air will nudge in and change the snow to a wintry mix followed by rain.

There is the potential for a significant ice event from the mountains of western Maryland towards I-95.

Dangerous travel is possible depending on the intensity of the precipitation.

The heavy rain for areas east of I-95 could lead to minor flooding.

Most of Maryland will dry out between 5-7 AM but Western Maryland could see snow continuing into midday.

Winds will also be a factor with wind gusts of 50 MPH possible as the storm tracks through and blustery conditions continuing in the wake of the system.

First Alert meteorologist Meg McNamara will have exclusive hourly updates starting at 10am on CBSN Baltimore. At 4 p.m., Bob Turk will have hourly First Alert updates on CBS-N Baltimore. Then make sure to tune in to WJZ news at 11 p.m. for extensive First Alert coverage of this winter weather and the impact on you and your family.

WJZ has an exclusive CBSN broadcast at 6 p.m. with a team of reporters tracking the storm along with your First Alert weather team.

WJZ will be working to keep you and your loved ones safe during this weather event. WJZ First Alert meteorologists will have the most up-to-date information on predicted snow totals and when the snow will be arriving.
