Both rush hours Monday are expected to be impacted. Drivers are encouraged to go slowly and allow more time for travel.

Total ice accumulation is expected to range from a trace to around 0.2″ in spots.

As snow continues on Monday, accumulations are expected to range anywhere from 6-12″ in central Maryland.

Future:

Both highs and lows will be below normal on Tuesday and Wednesday. Overnight lows will be down into the teens. Thursday will be a little warmer and Friday will have temperatures in the 40s.

We could reach 50 degrees by Saturday.
