BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Some cold air moved into the region Friday morning behind a slug of moisture that brought light rain and a few flurries to the area, WJZ Meteorologist Tim Williams says.

Radar shows that there was some snow on the back end of of the system, but most of the area is just saw rain.

The cold air moving into the region will drop our temperatures dramatically, though. Tim says it will get down to 12 degrees overnight Friday into Saturday.

The Baltimore City Health Department has issued an a Code Blue Alert for that time period.

“With temperatures and wind chills dropping precipitously from Friday evening into the early hours of Saturday morning, it is important for us to remember that hypothermia, or low body temperature, can be just as dangerous as extreme heat, and every year, there are Baltimoreans who die due to hypothermia,” said Dr. Leana Wen, Baltimore’s Health Commissioner.
