Ice Could Create Problems For Tuesday’s AM Commute

Monday, January 17, 2011 – Steve Fermier
 
Overnight driving tonight into the wee hours Wednesday could get slippery.

A mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain could leave a coating of ice before changing to all rain on Wednesday. 

A winter weather advisory has been posted for tonight starting at 11 for the extreme northeastern part of the state. 

WBAL’s Tony Pann said that snow and sleet should arrive by early evening tonight and gradually turn into freezing rain by midnight and then continue as freezing rain until about 8 a.m. Wednesday.

There are no severe weather statements west of the Bay, but the National Weather Service did issue the following:
