Monday weather wet, but snow accumulation unlikely

A winter weather advisory that had been in effect in parts of central Maryland was cancelled by the National Weather Service early Monday, as dry air is expected to limit the amount of precipitation in the area.

The advisory had been in effect through Monday evening in Montgomery and Howard counties. A light snow is still possible in the morning, though accumulation is not expected, and rain or sleet are likely, the weather service said. Temperatures will likely remain in the upper 30s.

A winter storm warning remains in effect in Western Maryland, with four-to-six inches of snow possible at higher elevations and two-to-four inches in the valleys, the weather service said.

The State Highway Administration said it will be monitoring the storm system as it moves through Maryland, and warned of "slick conditions and a slow commute."

Rain is expected in the Baltimore area through much of Monday evening, with rain showers after midnight. Forecasters said Tuesday will likely be cloudy with a chance of rain in the morning, then mostly sunny in the afternoon with highs reaching the mid-50s.

Clouds are expected on Wednesday and Thursday as well, with Friday looking mostly sunny.
