A winter weather advisory is in effect for the Baltimore-Washington area Saturday, as the National Weather Service is predicting that a storm could hit the region with as much as four inches of snow.
The forecast calls for a mix of rain and snow during the morning, shifting to all snow by noon.
The NWS has issued the advisory from Harford County to Prince William County, Va., until 8 p.m., on Saturday and says that much of the area could see one to two inches of snow, while areas at elevations above 800 feet could see up to four inches. Accumulating snow should end by late afternoon, the NWS said.
