Winter Storm Watch issued for Carroll Friday night

It's going to be cold the next few days with some accumulating snow possible Friday night.

We may see our first accumulating snow Friday night as the area could get an inch or two as the next storm system enters the area. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch from 12 a.m. to noon Saturday.

After Thursday's bitter cold and winds, clouds will increase Friday and precipitation will arrive late. It will start as snow and accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are possible especially in areas closer to the Pensylvannia border.

Snow is likely to start after 10 p.m. Friday and accumulation of 1 to 2 inches is expected. It will transition to freezing rain and sleet Saturday morning before changing to freezing rain and rain Saturday afternoon.

The wind chill will be in the single digits or lower. Friday shouldn't be as windy, but the highs will only be in the mid 20s.

This is certainly a change from the warm temperatures we enjoyed last year, and most Decembers. The Baltimore region hasn't fallen below 15 degrees in December since 2009.
