A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for the counties in pink from this evening into Monday evening for the potential of up to or over 6" of snow.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for the counties in purple from this evening into Monday evening for generally 2-4" of snow.
A mix of rain and snow will overspread the region this evening and change over to all snow overnight. The snow will continue into Monday morning, and accumulating snow is expected to impact the morning commute. Snow will continue throughout the morning and then begin to taper off during the afternoon and evening. Western areas can expect 4-8" of snow with amounts over 8" possible in the highest elevations of Mountain Maryland and the Potomac Highlands. Further east, 2-4" of snow is expected with isolated higher amounts possible in the mountain regions, such as the Catoctins.
Given the time of year and marginal temperatures, snow will have a difficult time accumulating on paved surfaces at the onset in valley locations. However in the mountainous areas and higher elevations (above 1,500ft.), snow will be accumulating shortly after it begins.
