TRAVEL-DISRUPTING SNOW POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY

A coastal storm will ride to our east, throwing moisture into building cold air overhead Wednesday. This means rain and snow mix developing for the entire area Tuesday night and for a very busy travel day on Wednesday. By the time it tapers late Wednesday, we could see up to three inches of snow here in the city, and maybe even up to four inches or so in places like Carroll County.

Deadly Weekend in Baltimore Claims Eight Lives

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:18 PM EDT

The first weekend of summer turned into a deadly one in Baltimore City. A total of 20 people were shot, and eight have died – though that number could still grow as several victims remain hospitalized.

The spate of violence has some questioning the job the city's new police commissioner is doing.

Outraged over this past weekend's violence and the number of lives lost, Councilman Brandon Scott has demanded there be an oversight hearing.

This afternoon FOX45 spoke with Police Commissioner Anthony Batts – a few doors down from where a teenager was shot and killed this weekend.

"We're having an unusual high spike this weekend," Batts said. "We will respond…the violence level…is unacceptable for us."

The department has increased patrols in areas identified as hot spots.
