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.

MD Official: Listeria Patients Have Recovered

Updated: Tuesday, February 25 2014, 03:58 PM EST

A Maryland health official says people sickened in recent months by a Listeria outbreak have recovered, and there have been no new confirmed cases.  

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported seven illnesses in Maryland linked to Hispanic-style cheese that were diagnosed between August and November of last year.  

Dr. Clifford Mitchell of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said Saturday the sickened patients live in the "national capital region."

He says state officials have not yet linked the illnesses to a particular product but are continuing to investigate a possible connection. 

In the meantime, he says health officials are distributing advisories in English and Spanish telling customers to avoid the cheese.  

Listeria is a serious illness that includes fever and muscle aches, often with other gastrointestinal symptoms.
