WINTER ADVISORY | Rain changing to sleet & snow overnight
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - A strong cold front will usher in much colder air across the region later tonight. Before precipitation ends, rain is expected
to change to sleet and snow northwest of the Interstate 81 corridor, and may do so as far southeast as the northern and western suburbs of Baltimore and
Washington. While road temperatures are currently warm, gusty winds and rapidly falling temperatures could cause a flash freeze on untreated surfaces,
especially in locations where precipitation lingers after the temperatures have fallen below freezing. Accumulations on non-paved surfaces will be light, ranging
from an inch or two across eastern Allegany, eastern Grant and eastern Mineral counties down to just a light coating along the I-81 corridor. Little or no
accumulation is expected close to Baltimore and Washington.
Overnight and early Saturday morning motorists should monitor road conditions closely and exercise caution if sleet and snow begin falling.
