Just like last week, the snowstorm headed for the Northeast Sunday will most likely skip blanketing Maryland with heavy snow, however those heading to Super Bowl parties should take note that the Baltimore area may still have to contend with some wintry precipitation.
The National Weather Service on Sunday issued a winter weather advisory for areas in northern Maryland along the Pennsylvania border, including portions of Frederick, Carroll and Baltimore counties, from 3 p.m. Sunday to 8 a.m. Monday.
Forecasters said residents in northern suburbs should prepare for a wintry mix of snow and sleet, followed by freezing rain. The advisory is in effect beginning Sunday afternoon, when around an inch of snow is expected to fall, followed by less than a tenth of an inch of ice in the evening. The mix is expected to change over to all rain by early Monday.
In Baltimore, a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected, which will gradually change to rain overnight. The Baltimore City Health Department has issued a Code Blue, extending homeless shelter access and hours, for Monday and Tuesday due to temperatures and wind chills expected to dip into the single digits.
Temperatures are expected to reach the mid-30s on Sunday and it will be cloudy.
Monday morning commuters could see another round of wintry mix, according to NWS forecasts.
