Sunday afternoon's slight snowfall ended with little accumulation in Maryland, but cold air will follow into the beginning of the week.

St. Mary's County saw the most snow with 2 inches recorded at Point Lookout, said Luis Rosa, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Meanwhile, 0.1 inches was measured at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, the point of record for the Baltimore area.

The winter storm passed through Georgia last night and produced tornadoes in Florida, before it veered Sunday off the North Carolina coast, Rosa said.

"It was really too far south to give us the maxim precipitation," he said. "It was also moving pretty fast."

In Maryland, the snowfall began around noon and ended by 3 p.m., Rosa said.

Still, the coldest weather of the winter is forecast for Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures may plunge to the 20s with windchill in the single digits.

Baltimore Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen issued a Code Blue warning Friday to encourage vulnerable residents to shelter inside.

Last winter, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner recorded 12 hypothermia-related deaths in Baltimore, according to Wen's notice.

More snow is forecast for Friday night, Rosa said, but it's too soon to predict the accumulation.
