Friday forecast: Cloudy, mild with highs in 50s

A mild day was forecast for the Baltimore area Friday with highs in the mid-50s under mostly cloudy skies, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures were expected to drop to the upper 30s overnight, rising to around 50 by midday. Slight winds of 5-10 mph were forecast.

Rain was expected to move in Friday evening, turning to a wintry mix or snow. The precipitation is forecast to turn to snow for most of the region Saturday morning, potentially accumulating a few inches.

Meteorologists were expecting another tricky snow forecast. As of Friday morning, they were calling for 1-2 inches across the Baltimore area, with the best chances in the northern suburbs. Along the Interstate 95 corridor, snow is only expected to stick to grassy surfaces, forecasters said.

Cold air was expected to move in for the weekend, with highs in the upper 30s and lows in the 20s Saturday and Sunday.

Another chance of snow could come Tuesday.
