Low pressure will develop off the Delmarva coast today and track northeast well offshore, bringing some light rain and snow late this afternoon into tonight, with some accumulations likely in the higher terrain, especially east of Albany. As low pressure pulls away on Sunday, lingering rain and snow showers will continue as the upper level system moves through before high pressure will return into Monday. Yet another storm system looks to approach the region on Tuesday with a round of mixed precipitation.
