Snow falls, waters rise, fog won't lift across Baltimore region

The day before Opening Day in Baltimore looked anything but spring-like.

Chilly rain gave way to a wintry mix and later some unexpected snow in northern areas of Maryland. Residents reported light snow and sleet in Northern Baltimore, Carroll and Howard counties.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory through midnight for northern parts of Baltimore County after steady rain and snow across the region Sunday.

Minor flooding forecast in some rivers and streams in the parts of southern Baltimore County, northern Anne Arundel and eastern Howard was expected to subside by Monday morning.

Forecasts call for continued rain into the morning, though not as intense as Sunday.

Prince William County was on a wind advisory and Maryland portions of the Chesapeake Bay and tidal Potomac River were on gale warnings, the service said.

Any snow or ice that accumulated Sunday should melt Monday, as the forecast is calling for a high around 60.
