A frigid, snowy weather pattern for the eastern United States is expected to continue into next week – with chances for accumulating snow expected on Super Bowl Sunday into Monday.
Snow is likely Sunday afternoon into Monday morning as a system is expected to pass south of the region, putting Maryland on its colder and snowier side, according to the National Weather Service. Forecasters expect the system to pass through relatively quickly, but said accumulating snow is "certainly a possibility." It was too early to predict any totals Thursday.
In between the two systems, frigid air is expected over the region. Lows are forecast in the teens, with wind chills in the single digits, early Saturday morning. Highs Saturday are forecast only in the upper 20s, with blustery winds making it feel like the teens.
