An area of low pressure will quickly move through the Great Lakes and into Maryland tonight. Cold air will be in place through the weekend so we are anticipating an all snow event tonight into early Sunday morning. As this storm moves offshore it will intensify and bring heavier snow into regions the further north and east you go from Baltimore.
Here is our simulation radar for tonight around 8pm. The initial band of snow will be light however, as the night rolls on we could see heavier snow bands develop.
The storm will then develop offshore bringing a heavy band of snow over NJ and NY during the late morning hours on Sunday into the afternoon. The wild card to this forecast will be whether this storm develops closer to the coast bringing a band of heavy snow closer to Baltimore.
ABC 2's Rapid Precision Model continues to show a healthy dusting of snow to around 1" in many spots. Again, should this storm develop a little sooner and closer to the coast we could easily see more snow. The further north and east you head the more snow you can expect!
The Bottom Line
When: TONIGHT after 6pm - Sunday Morning 5am
Where: Baltimore Metro and Surrounding Suburbs
How Much: A full coating to 1" in spots. Possibly more over Cecil, Queen Anne's, and Kent counties.

All-time record high temperatures were set at several location in south central Alaska Monday afternoon.
A potent area of low pressure will move along this rim and drop down the front side bringing a round of severe weather to Maryland Wednesday evening/night through Thursday afternoon (timing is still in question).
As the moisture from this tropical low moves north it will interact with a trough out to the west. This will increase Maryland's rain chances late Thursday into early Saturday morning.
Meteorologists with the National Weather Service and researchers from the University of Oklahoma continue to investigate the May 31st El Reno tornado that hit just west of Oklahoma City.
No big shocker here. Oklahoma shares the top of the list of states with the most tornadoes rated either F5 or EF5 since 1950.
