BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Maryland is bracing for another round of winter weather Monday.
A winter weather advisory has been issued for much of the state. It will go into effect at 3 a.m. Monday (1 a.m. western Md.) and will expire at 10 a.m.
“Clouds will come in tonight and then light rain will break out overnight,” said Meteorologist Bernadette Woods.
Marylanders can expect freezing rain slightly before dawn Monday and then a little bit of rain during the day.
“Even though the amount of rain will be very light and spotty, it will freeze when it hits the ground – and any ice or chance of ice is a major issue,” Woods said.
There should be a little over a tenth of an inch of ice on the roads early Monday, so drivers are encouraged to plan extra time for their morning commute.
“This is the transition from cold weather to near 70 degrees by the middle of the week,” said Meteorologist Tim Williams.
The poor weather is expected to be over by the time the Ravens rally begins at 11:30 a.m. You can watch that rally live on WJZ.
