BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Winter weather is heading to Maryland.
Chelsea Ingram reports.
A Winter Storm Warning has now been issued for areas west of the I-95 corridor, including northern Baltimore County. Accumulations of snow and sleet, transitioning into freezing rain is forecasted and is expected to continue through Monday morning. This will mean hazardous travel conditions are possible due to slick roads and icy conditions. Travel is likely to be severely impacted Sunday afternoon through Monday morning.
“Some sleet and snow tomorrow, starting late morning,” WJZ meteorologist Tim Williams said. “Then it will change over to plain rain at night; some slick spots and 1-2 inches are possible during the day. Areas north and west of BWI may have prolonged icing at night.”
Here’s a breakdown:
Snow or a snow-sleet mix will move in between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Sunday. It will then transition to freezing rain during the afternoon and evening.
A transition to all rain will occur at some point Sunday evening or overnight into Monday morning.
Anywhere from 1-3 inches of snow and sleet with an additional 0.1-0.3 inches of ice. Freezing rain may collect on power lines, trees and make driving conditions very dangerous. Be sure to monitor local watches and warnings.
The Mayor’s Christmas Parade will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. Attendees are advised to dress appropriately. The Ravens/Vikings game also begins at that time.
“It could look like Minnesota during that game,” Williams said.
Ice could be a problem. Drivers are advised to be cautious on the road.
