For the past week, forecasters have been watching a storm brewing along the east coast. How much will the mid-Atlantic get? When will it arrive? Forecasts differ depending on the model, but one thing is for sure: it's going to get cold, like single digit cold, going into the weekend. 

Today the National Weather Service (NWS) predicts a 60 percent chance of rain and snow between 2 and 4 p.m., then snow likely. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

Tonight expect snow, mainly before 4 a.m. It will be blustery out, with lows around 15, according to NWS. Winds could gust as high as 32 miles per hour. NWS predicts two to four inches of snow for the Westminster area. 

The sun will come out Friday but it will do little to offset the cold as temps will reach a high of 16 with wind chill values as low as five degrees below zero. It will again be blustery with a northwest wind 17 to 24 miles per hour. 

Friday night will be mostly clear with a low around 10 degrees. 

Temperatures will return to normal Saturday with highs near 30 degrees.
