Radar images this morning show the storm heading head

The weather service predicted a total of 2-4 inches across most of Central Maryland, with amounts on the lower end of that range expected north and east of Baltimore, and the higher amounts to the south and west.

We'll keep watching things closely, stay tuned! We will see widespread rain for most of the day with highs in the mid 40s.

Motorists along the Interstate 64 and 70 corridors of the Plains and Midwest can expect a slow and slippery journey as a storm with snow takes aim from Friday to Sunday. In fact, areas along and south of 460 should be dry for most of Saturday. For Saturday, snow continues for St. Louis. Snow rates will gradually increase as you head through the day, so road conditions may be OK until later in the afternoon.

The Southeast has seen abundant precipitation in December and January, and the additional rain could put a strain on rivers already high.

For the metro, confidence is high that we will receive at least 1 to 3 inches of snow.

Snow should overspread the viewing area in the 7 to 11 a.m. time frame Saturday morning. Snow and slushy roads are likely for the morning and afternoon commutes.

A Winter Storm Warning (pink-shaded area on the map below) is in effect calling for 6 to 9-inches of snow, beginning today in eastern Missouri and spreading east across southern portions of IL and in tonight through Saturday and eventually into southwest Ohio.

The NWS says snow is expected across the region and some parts could get four to six inches of snow. However, an area of up to 6 inches of accumulation can occur with up to 12 inches possible.
