We Could See Some Snow Tonight

Wednesday, December 07, 2011 – John Patti
 
Parts of the Baltimore area could see some accumulation of snow later tonight and in the overnight hours of Thursday.

As rain moves out of the area later this evening, the question will be whether the temperature drops enough to cause the precipitation to change to snow before stopping.

WBAL Meteorologist Tony Pann says the Baltimore Metro area could see an inch or two of accumulation with 2 to 4 inches possible in the Maryland mountains.
