Winter Storm Watch Posted For Tuesday

Monday, January 10, 2011 – Steve Fermier
 
A winter storm now slamming the south is moving toward Maryland.  It could impact the Tuesday afternoon commute. 

WBAL’s Tony Pann is calling it as a kind of repeat of the last storm that hit harder in New York and New England.

But areas around the Bay could see accumulations.  Tonys said one to 4 inches in the city and possibly 3 to six on the Eastern Shore.

Keep updated on this storm with traffic and weather on the 5s.
