BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A freezing rain advisory was in effect for the Baltimore metro along with northern Montgomery, Howard, southern Baltimore and southern Harford Counties until 4 a.m. Sunday.
“We should be seeing some light rain for Baltimore and areas south, as well as some drizzle in spots. In northern Baltimore, there is some potential for some of the rain to freeze on contact, as well as some sleet in some locations, as well light freezing rain or drizzle heading into tonight,” says Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram.
“The main concern tonight will be the potential for patchy icing on untreated and elevated surfaces, along with secondary roads, back roads and even country roads. Bridges and overpasses could also be affected this evening. While we aren’t expecting a lot of freezing rain, it only takes a trace to cause major problems on the roadway,” she says.
The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) pre-treated roads and bridges in advance of the storm Friday night, as well as Saturday night, with sleet and freezing rain accumulating throughout most of Saturday into Saturday night.
Sunday should see the return of sunshine along with milder temperatures in the mid-40s.
