(WJZ) Baltimore, MD WJZ Meterologist Brooks Tomlin says a significant winter storm will impact Maryland Monday into Tuesday. The only question is: who will recieve the most snow?

Right now, the National Weather Service has posted a winter storm watch for the entire Baltimore and D.C metropolitan area. There is the potential for moderate snow accumulations capable of producing travel problems and school cancellations.

However, First Warning Weather is tracking the storm closely over the next 12 to 24 hours. A change in the storms direction could increase or lessen snow totals in different parts of the metropolitan area.

On Monday, an area of low pressure (storm) is forecast to rapidly strengthen while moving northeast across Georgia and the Carolinas. Maryland will be on the cold side of this storm, so any precipitation that falls will be snow.

Based on the current forecast track of the winter storm, the heaviest swath of snow is forecast to be on a line from Roanoke, Virginia to Dover, Delaware. However, if the storm's track shifts just a bit north, Baltimore and Central Maryland could see quite a bit of snow.

Now, how much and when you ask, right? With the storm's current track, the Baltimore area should receive between 3" and 6" of snow, primarily Monday afternoon and Monday night. Between 4" and 8" of snow is forecast for southern Maryland in the same timeframe.

Again, if the storm's track shifts a bit north, expect more snow in Baltimore. If the storm's track shifts a bit south, expect less of an event in Maryland.

Winter Storm Watches have been posted in the majority of Eastern Maryland including the counties of Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, Frederick, Anne Arundel, Prince Georges, Montgomery, and the entire Eastern Shore.
