Snow, ice showers reported in region

I'm seeing reports on social media of snow and sleet showers in the suburbs, including northwestern Howard County and near Pikesville.

Officially, the only wintry weather expected in the forecast is in Western Maryland, with up to an inch expected today near Deep Creek Lake, according to the National Weather Service. But with temperatures barely breaking 50 degrees and cold air coming in on the jet stream from Canada, any showers of precipitation today could be snow or ice.

It's not totally unusual -- Baltimore has seen at least a trace of snow in April four out of the past 10 years. But of course it seems a bit out of place given the March heat that nearly broke records here and smashed records elsewhere around the country.

Have you seen any frozen precipitation where you are? Tweet or e-mail me a photo.
