 Light snowfall was hit or miss this week, but another chance of snow is in the weekend forecast for part of Maryland, followed by more Arctic air next week.

A string of cold weather may extend into next week, and bring another chance for a snowstorm to Maryland next weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

AccuWeather forecasters said an Alberta clipper storm will send an Arctic blast into Maryland by Sunday. Snow or some flurries may reach part of the mid-Atlantic coast later Sunday with spotty accumulations in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, the network said.

The National Weather Service said there is a 20 percent chance of isolated snow showers after 1 p.m. Sunday, with scattered snow showers possible, mainly before 10 p.m.

Another clipper system crosses Maryland late Monday through Tuesday and arctic high pressure will settle overhead for the middle portion of next week, the weather service said.

Friday's high of 26 degrees at Baltimore-Washington International Airport was the coldest day since February 2019, the National Weather Service said.

The cold blast will move in Wednesday into Thursday, bringing cold and dry conditions, with highs in the upper 20s to lower 30s. Overnight lows will dip into the teens and single digits by Wednesday night. By Friday, a trough from Canada could produce a potentially significant coastal storm, the weather service said.

A winter weather advisory is in effect from noon Sunday to 1 a.m. Monday in Garrett County, where 2 to 4 inches of snowfall is possible.
