The National Weather Service is predicting a “snow event” for the Baltimore/D.C. region starting early Sunday morning.

A strong storm is moving towards the east coast and is expected to draw moisture off the Atlantic Ocean. By daybreak Sunday, heavy, wet snow should be falling throughout the region. In certain areas, this snow may mix with or change to sleet, rain, or freezing rain by Sunday evening. Roads may be treacherous.

In the immediate Baltimore/D.C. area, the forecast is currently calling for 4 inches of snow with a strong possibility of the snow changing over to rain. Areas west are expected to receive heavier snowfall. 6 or more inches of snow may fall on the Wisp ski area in western Maryland. West Virginia resorts such as Canaan Valley, Timberline, and Snowshoe may see 9 or more inches of snow. 6 or more inches of snow are also expected to fall in southwestern Pennsylvania, benefitting resorts such as Seven Springs and Hidden Valley.
