Pann: After The Snow, Bitter Cold

Tuesday, February 22, 2011 – Steve Fermier, Robert Lang and Associated Press
 
Now that the snow has stopped, WBAL Meteorologist Tony Pann says it will be cold today with highs in the 30’s, and lows tonight in the low teens. Pann says any snow that melts on roadways today is likely to refreeze tonight, making tomorrow morning’s commute on side streets difficult.Snowfall totals ranged from just under 2-inches in Severn to 7-inches in Bel Air and Westminster.

The Maryland State Highway Administration is asking motorists to delay their travel plans so that crews can clear the roadways of snow and sleet.

The agency said early Tuesday that more than 2,000 workers have been deployed to keep the roads open, and that crews have been working throughout the night. It says interstates and primary roads have been plowed and treated, but there are still some snow-covered areas.

Drivers are being asked to delay their driving plans, and to use caution on ramps, bridge and overpasses.

In Prince George’s County, crews worked overnight to clear primary roadways. They will begin another 12-hour shift at 10 a.m.

In Annapolis, officials say the city’s three parking garages will be free to residents until 5 p.m.

Snow fell heavily throughout the night hours and could cause serious travel problems through the early morning rush hours as snow plows push the roads clear and spread salt on icy surfaces.
