Light snow falling today; forecasters eye bigger storm next week

Snow was falling in places around the Baltimore region Friday morning, and points north may encounter accumulations of snow, as forecasters look ahead to a more serious threat of wintry weather next week.

A weak low-pressure system is forecast to bring a mix of light snow and rain overnight and into Friday morning.

The National Weather Service predicts less than an inch of snow will accumulate across much of Carroll, Baltimore and Harford counties and Baltimore City.

Accumulation in Western Maryland led to school delays in Garrett and Allegany counties, as well as at Frostburg State University — where classes will start at 10 a.m. See the full rundown of school delays here.

Given that temperatures climbed to 71 degrees Thursday afternoon at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, it’s unlikely that any snow will stick to pavement, though roads could still be slick.
