While a fast-moving storm from the Canada Prairies will mostly pass north of the Baltimore area Tuesday, snow showers can be persistent enough in some locations to coat the ground.

A swath of light snow will sweep across Pennsylvania and northern Maryland into New England Tuesday.

A couple of rounds of snow showers could bring a coating up to an inch and make for slippery travel around Baltimore, especially over the northern and western suburbs early in the morning and again toward the evening Tuesday.

According to Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams, "This will be the last opportunity for snow around Baltimore, through the Christmas holiday."

Temperatures will trend upward later in the week and could reach record high levels this coming weekend.

A series of storms with rain late this week into early next week may also bring episodes of fog and travel problems.
