More wintry precipitation in forecast Sunday, Monday

Forecasts suggest a mix of snow, sleet and rain from Sunday afternoon through Monday in the Baltimore area.

Meteorologists expect a low-pressure system to form and pass over the region Monday, bringing some messy precipitation ahead of it and likely snow behind it, according the National Weather Service.

Forecasters predict a mix of rain and sleet Sunday night, with temperatures in the lower- to mid-30s. Precipitation was expected to shift to rain with temperatures climbing into the lower 40s Monday.

But as colder air rushes back into the region as the low-pressure system moves away, snow is possible by Monday afternoon and evening.

The system is expected to bring heavy snow to our north. forecasters predict as much as a foot of snow from Ohio into New England. Along the southern edge of the storm, including around the Mason-Dixon Line and to the south, warmer air was expected to make for more of a mix of precipitation.

Stay tuned as it becomes clearer this weekend where the line between rain and snow will end up. It could be another tricky forecast, as WMAR-TV meteorologist Mike Masco suggests:

LOTS of BUZZ about the late wknd/Monday storm. CAREFUL with this.. LOTS of mixing w/ SW winds aloft! Not a closed low
