BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Snow covered the radar Wednesday morning, but most of the state saw nothing more than a few flurries.
As we expected, dry air and temperatures above freezing kept flakes from even bringing north and west suburbs a light dusting.READ MORE: Hundreds Of Saliva Samples Expire From Ripken Stadium COVID-19 Testing Site
Far western Maryland was the exception, getting up to 2.5 inches in certain places.
The rest of Wednesday will be cloudy and chilly, with temperatures topping out in the low to mid 40s.
Skies will clear overnight as temperatures tumble into the upper 20s.
NW winds will be between 5-10 MPH, with gusts up to 20 MPH.
Thursday will be partly cloudy, with highs in the mid-40s.
Temperatures take quite a step up on Friday when we’ll top out in the mid-50s.

Friday’s warm up is just a preview of the very mild air that arrives on Saturday.
A warm front will cause temps to soar into the low 70s.
That should beat the current record high of 69° for Dec. 11, which was set in 1979.
In addition to the unseasonable warmth, plan for gusty winds on Saturday.
We’ll make it through most of the day dry but rain and a few thunderstorms are likely during the evening as a cold front swings through.
Downpours and isolated damaging winds gusts are possible as the system tracks across the state.
The storms should be quick movers but there is the potential for some flooding and this is something we’ll be monitoring.
