'Coldest temps,' wind advisory, possible snow in forecast

'Coldest temps,' wind advisory, possible snow in forecast

The storm is expected to arrive Saturday night and last through Sunday morning, but whatever snow does stick isn't expected to last long. Precipitation will then begin between 4 p.m.to 7 p.m. on Saturday.

A significant winter storm will move in Saturday morning, bringing widespread heavy snow through Sunday. The snow will have a wet consistency, especially at the coast, with temperatures hovering in the lower 30s. Be cautious if you are traveling in these areas Saturday evening as road conditions could be slick. But in the middle we have some snow to get through Saturday night into daybreak Sunday. "However.it certainly is possible that this system shifts 50 miles south and we end up with just a 1 to 4-inch snowfall". Generally favoring one to three inches of snow on the grass in these areas with an isolated area getting a little more. We couldn't ask for better timing, most of the snow will fall as we sleep.

As a cold front crosses early Friday, colder air quickly moves in Friday afternoon and by Friday night, temperatures will be (believe it or not) below freezing.

WJZ's Bob Turk says the Baltimore area can expect an inch or two of snow, but areas affected by the advisory could see up to five inches of snow.

Tuesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 40. On Tuesday, Boston will be back to some spring-like temperatures with a high near 64 degrees. The heaviest snow will fall from 9pm to 3am Sunday.


IMPACTS... Scattered power outages and minor tree damage can be expected.

Other areas of Montana that are expected to pick up significant snow are the Flathead/Mission Valleys, Kootenai/Cabinet Region, West Glacier Region and the Seeley Lake/Potomac Region.

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny in the morning with increasing afternoon clouds.

Friday: A chance of rain and snow showers.
