BALTIMORE (WJZ) – A strong cold front will pass through Maryland on Monday, bringing significantly colder air to the mid-Atlantic region.
Another system is expected to arrive in the area late Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. Digital models continue to lean towards a scenario where some of us might see our first snowpack of the season.

This is a very delicate forecast as WJZ meteorologists continue to monitor forecast trends.
There is a gap between the GFS model, which forecasts about three inches of snow for the Baltimore metro area, and the Euro model, which calls for significantly less snowfall.
Overall, there has been a downward trend in moisture availability. At this point, a forecast of less than an inch of snow accumulation for the Baltimore area seems reasonable.

The National Weather Service, which monitors the threat of a winter storm, predicts a 30% chance of precipitation with a potential for snow as early as 4 a.m. Wednesday.
The NWS forecasts both snow and rain before 1:00 p.m., rain until 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, then snowfall in the afternoon and evening.
The weather could leave the roads slick and wet on Wednesday, so drivers are advised to exercise caution.
