Another potential snowmaker moves into the Mid-Atlantic on Saturday. This time, snow and ice could reach a little farther south and east.
Snow showers begin to develop from the southwest after Midnight
Snow becomes more widespread around 7 am for central and northern areas, with an icy mix southeast of I-95.

Expect most of the snow accumulation by 12 pm. The Baltimore Metro Area will see a general 1-3″ while the northern and western suburbs could get a little more. Trace amounts of ice or snow may accumulate southeast of the I-95 corridor. St. Mary’s county as well as the lower Eastern Shore counties may see some snow and ice early on, but this primarily be a rain event.
Wintry mix tapers off from southwest to northeast, roads remain slippery
Decreasing clouds, temperatures fall below freezing overnight, roads become icy
Icy spots on the roads, especially in the morning, partly cloudy skies around the state, isolated snow showers in Western Maryland and central Pennsylvania.
NOTE: it’s important to note that the computer models have really back off on snow accumulations for Saturday. While we are taking this into consideration, we must remember that the past two snowstorms outpeformed the models, meaning, we got more snow than what was expected. Only time will tell whether or not this is the case again.
