State-wide White Christmas Unlikely, but Snow Chances Increase Later in the Week

As we head into the holiday weekend, expect a warm and rainy Saturday as a low pressure system swings a cold front through the state. General rainfall totals of .25-.75″ are likely by the time the front passes and rain ends tomorrow evening into tomorrow night.



If you were hoping for a white Christmas in Maryland, it looks like you will have to head to the mountains. A weak system is likely to bring snow showers, with a few inches of accumulation likely Sunday into Monday. Further east, a few snow flurries or snow showers may make it over the mountains and into central Maryland, but no accumulation is expected.



We will have a stretch of quiet and cold weather for the first half of next week. Another storm system may affect our area by the end of the week. Until that threat comes into better focus, you can track the risk on the Winter weather page.
