Winter storm warning in effect for the North Fork

The mountains of Maryland and along the PA/MD State Line will see the best chance of accumulating snow, especially Carroll, Frederick, western Howard, northern Baltimore, and northern Harford Counties.

As much as six inches of snow fell in parts of Cumberland and Dauphin counties on Saturday evening, according to unofficial report totals from the National Weather Service. After 6 p.m., temperatures were again in single digits.

Sunday: Early snow, then sunshine. The Friday afternoon commute will be a wet one. Chance of precipitation is 100 percent.

High pressure will bring rain showers to an end Friday night. These are the first effects of a slow-moving cold front.

Back to the freezer! Most of us will see readings steady in the 30s while others to our east touch 40 degrees.

The record high for February 20 in the Greater Hartford Area is 69 degrees.

Snow is also expected overnight and into the morning hours before 10am Sunday. And this forecast is still a low-confidence, complicated mess.

New York's Central Park has only picked up 1.9 inches of snow since January 4, but still remains above its average season snowfall-to-date, tallying 19.4 inches so far this season. Up to a half-inch of rain is expected today. This storm will dump the heaviest snow to our south. Temperatures though will be the biggest factor here in determining the precipitation type. I suspect this will occur along and just northwest of the NJ Turnpike.

Tuesday: Patchy fog before 10 a.m. Winds should decrease late Saturday evening.

A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.

"We're looking at a band of 3-6" of snow. This mix will limit accumulations to about the 1 to 3 inch range. Coastal areas are expected to get less because the snow could mix with rain for periods. Residents are cautioned against traveling during the storm unless absolutely necessary, and are urged to continue to monitor the latest forecasts and plan ahead if they need to travel during that time. Monday is Presidents Day, and the storm will slowly move out. The Euro has resolved to a middle-ground solution, pretty close to what I've presented here. With temperatures warming quickly Sunday, any lingering slush on roads should melt quickly. An isolated flurry early with a chance for fog. Very cold temperatures will follow on Tuesday.
