Snow looks to miss most of the region Sunday

Light snow showers in Western Maryland and some flurries in Harford and Cecil counties are forecast Sunday, but few or no snowflakes are forecast in between despite earlier predictions for decent snow chances.

A low-pressure system that looked like it might sweep up the East Coast is instead just going to pass over Florida and head out to sea, according to National Weather Service meteorologists.

And a so-called "clipper" system known for bringing quick bursts of light snow is passing to our north, bringing with it a 20 percent chance for snow showers in the northeastern corner of the state and the greater Philadelphia area, instead of Baltimore.

It is meanwhile forecast to be a (relatively) snowy weekend for Western Maryland, with a few inches possible along the Allegheny Front, according to the weather service.

As much as half an inch of rain is possible Friday night in the Baltimore area, but otherwise there is no precipitation in the forecast here.

Measurable snow has yet to fall this winter at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport -- there have only been traces of snow on a few occasions there. BWI has not gone so late into the winter without measuring snow since Winter 2006-2007.
