Maryland Weather: Winter mix possible later this week | Bot To News

Cold temperatures arrive later this week, which may bring the possibility of wintry weather across the region.

At this time, it appears that the best opportunity for shocking winter weather with the potential to hamper travel will be west and north of Baltimore, closer to the Pennsylvania border and the Blue Ridge Mountains to western Maryland.

Winter weather will also be possible in the Baltimore area to kick off the morning rush hour.

Any winter weather that does occur will be short-lived, as temperatures will be warm enough for rain by mid-morning Thursday and through the rest of the day.

It is still too early to get specific information on precipitation types, amounts, and areas that could be most impacted.

There are several days to observe the situation and determine how the storm will develop and evolve.

Marylanders should plan for the possibility of some travel disruptions beginning Thursday morning.

But the sky will be mostly sunny on Monday and Tuesday.

We will be sandwiched between an upper level low to our east and a building ridge to our west through at least Tuesday, allowing for dry but cool conditions through the start of the week.

Temperatures Monday will start in the mid 30s in most areas.

The typical overnight low this time of year is about 30 degrees, so we are well above that for this time of year.

Temperature highs will reach 40 degrees on Monday and 40 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday.

But minimum temperatures will drop to 20 degrees Monday night and Tuesday night.

By Wednesday afternoon, the clouds will have started to build as the next storm system approaches.

Temperatures will climb well above freezing late Thursday morning with rain expected for the rest of the day through Thursday night.

That rain will clear up early Friday morning and dry weather will return just in time for the weekend.

Expect highs in the 40s Friday and into the weekend with the sun returning in full force on Saturday.

Temperature lows will dip into the 20s and 30s all week and into Sunday night.
