BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland highway officials say drivers should use caution with freezing rain possible during the Monday morning commute.
The State Highway Administration says its crews will not pre-treat roads with salt brine because temperatures are expected to drop to 20 degrees or colder overnight.
SHA Administrator Melinda Peters says crews will be out before commuters hit the roads, but icy conditions are possible.
The National Weather Service says central and western Maryland are under a winter weather advisory from 5 a.m. to noon Monday. The forecast calls for freezing rain, possibly mixed with sleet or snow.
