The National Weather Service is forecasting a dusting of snow and a glaze of ice west of Interstate 95 as a low-pressure system overtakes the area Thursday.

Temperatures are forecast to hover around the freezing mark across Central Maryland, making it difficult to predict precisely where the line between icy precipitation and cold rain could develop. Weather service meteorologists said to expect “further revisions” to the forecast.
