BALTIMORE (WJZ) — You aren’t seeing things, there’s winter weather in Maryland right now!
Chelsea Ingram has details.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 1 a.m. for Carroll County.
A Winter Weather Advisory is also in effect for northern Baltimore, Cecil, Howard and Montgomery counties. Snow and sleet may mix in at times with rain, particularly north and west of the city this afternoon and evening as the coldest part of the storm system tracks across Baltimore. Elevations over 700 feet could see accumulations between 2-4″ of snowfall. Snow may be heavy at times through the early evening for areas north and west of the beltway, before tapering off from west to east between 9 p.m. and midnight.
A Flood Warning is in effect for Montgomery County. We have already seen rainfall of 1-2″ region-wide causing small streams and creeks to rise. Rain, mixing with wintry weather in spots will continue this evening and tonight before tapering off.
By later tonight, the area of low pressure will pull away and the band of precipitation over us right now will be weakening. The precipitation and intensity will lessen and we will be left with just a lingering shower or two as we head into the overnight hours. Conditions will then finally improve tomorrow as early morning clouds give way to sunshine by the afternoon, just in time for Opening Day!
