Forecasters see another taste of winter early Wednesday

The region had a taste of a white Christmas early this week, and forecasters predicted another chance of wintry weather on Wednesday.

According to the National Weather Service, a storm system will begin moving into the Baltimore area Wednesday morning, starting as a wintry mix. Forecasters predicted a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain will start falling across central and western Maryland late Tuesday night.

Officials predicted it would change to rain later Wednesday morning or early afternoon. How the storm tracks could affect accumulations, if any, officials said.

The weather service also issued a winter storm warning for extreme western Allegany County, predicting between five and eight inches of snow or sleet falling throughout Wednesday, most heavily in the afternoon. In eastern parts of the county, as well as Frederick and Washington counties, three inches were forecast.
