Two days after the region surged into the 60s, a light snow could arrive Tuesday and again on Wednesday, but accumulations were expected to be light.

Less than an inch of snow was expected both days as a light snow blankets much of the Northeast, according to the National Weather Service. Weather service forecasters said they expect a chance of light snow around midday Tuesday, and then another early Wednesday morning.

AccuWeather.com is calling for 1-3 inches from Virginia to Maine from Tuesday night through Wednesday night.

Temperatures are expected to be plenty cold, with highs in the mid-30s, lows in the lower- to mid-20s and blustery winds making it feel like the teens and 20s both days in Baltimore.

Even colder air is expected from a cold front behind the snow, with lows in the teens Thursday night into Friday and again Saturday night into Sunday.

Any springlike weather beyond that could be just a tease, suggests AccuWeather.com's Henry Margusity:

"It would appear that the cold will last well into March and perhaps into early April before a break in the cold occurs. While we will have some spits of warm weather, the cold will be king through that time."
