The next few days in Havre de Grace are going to be colder and wetter than a dog's nose

The rain that drenched the region Friday will subside, and Saturday should be clear albeit chilly in Havre de Grace, with a high of 41 and a low of 25 degrees for the city's annual tree lighting at 6 p.m. in Rochambeau Plaza.

Harford County is under a winter storm watch from 9 a.m. Sunday to 7 a.m. Monday. A winter storm watch means there's potential for "significant snow, sleet and ice accumulations that may impact travel," according to the National Weather Service.

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 to 1.5 inches of snow may fall in Havre de Grace on Sunday, which the weather service said may go something like this:
  • Before noon—snow
  • Noon to 4 p.m.—sleet and snow
  • 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.—freezing rain and sleet
  • 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. Monday—rain or freezing rain
One to two inches of snow and sleet and at least a quarter-inch of ice may accumulate Sunday night and into Monday. Temperatures Sunday will stay in the low thirties.

Other areas under the winter storm watch include Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Frederick, Howard and Prince George's counties in Maryland plus the District of Columbia and some parts of Virginia.
