A light dusting of snow on Monday, with temperatures too high for accumulation, will be followed by a cold front that is expected to linger over the Baltimore region for the rest of the week.
Brian Edwards, a meteorologist with Accuweather.com, said the high temperature into the weekend is not forecast to be warmer than about 25 degrees.
"Not only that, the wind will be kicking up as well," Edwards said. "When you add in the wind, it will feel like it's down near zero."
Friday could bring a wintry mix and lead to a treacherous afternoon commute, Edwards said. An early forecast shows sleet, snow and freezing rain are possible, although snow accumulation isn't likely below the Mason-Dixon line, he said.
