HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A winter storm is making highways hazardous for afternoon commuters.

Maryland State Police reported numerous minor accidents Friday on Interstates 70 and 68 amid snowy, windy conditions.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for most of Maryland. It says up to three inches of snow could fall Friday afternoon and evening east of Garrett County.

Garrett County could get four to six inches by Saturday night.

The foul weather prompted early school closings in many counties.

Frostburg State University canceled all classes and activities at 1 p.m.
