BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Winter weather is moving into Maryland! Most of Maryland is under a Winter Storm Warning.

Bob Turk reports the Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 7 a.m. Tuesday through 11 p.m.

Here’s a breakdown:

Timeline:

The snow is expected to start around 10 a.m. Tuesday and continue until around 9 p.m.  Some lingering snow showers will be felt along the Delmarva peninsula through 11 p.m.

Accumulations:

There is the potential for 3-6 inches of snow in the metro area.

There will be gradual accumulation through the business day until after rush hour.

The snow will most likely be powdery, blowing snow.  Blowing and drifting snow will become a problem with the wind picking up during the day and continuing through Tuesday night.

Some places that will be especially at risk for higher amounts include the Eastern Shore and Delaware, plus the higher elevations of the far western Maryland mountains.  Those areas will likely get 6-10 inches of snow.

Temperatures:

Highs will be near 25. Temperatures are expected to drop into the teens.  Wind chill values will be in the single digits, dropping to -10 or -15 Tuesday night.

Travel:

Traveling may be dangerous Tuesday. The morning and evening commute may be impacted by snow.  Roads could be snow covered and slippery. The combination of snow and blowing snow will reduce visibility to below one-half mile at times.

In addition, with the very cold air coming in, the road treatments will be less effective.
