11 Insta-Weather PLUS meteorologist Tony Pann said there’s 40 percent chance for rain showers with temperatures around 50 late in the day Sunday, but the cold air will come in very fast Sunday night and the storm may start as freezing rain and sleet before changing over to snow on Monday.

11 Insta-Weather PLUS meteorologist Ava Marie said a heavy band of snow from this storm could bring as much as a foot of snow to central Pennsylvania, but it was too early to tell Friday how much snow Maryland could see, which will depend on the storm track. The farther north the storm goes, Maryland sees more rain, but if the storm comes closer south, more snow will fall.

Cold air blanketed the state with temperatures close to record lows on Friday. Temperatures were forecast to reach the 40s over the weekend.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for Garrett County in western Maryland to take effect Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon.
