BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A round of winter weather is headed to Maryland Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
Kai Jackson has more on preparations.
The bulk of the snow will continue to fall west of the Baltimore region, but the rain alone in this area is causing its share of problems.
Snow hammered Grantsville in Garrett County, as seen from a state highway traffic camera at Interstate 68 in western Maryland. A storm moved through parts of the state.
“We know it’s wintertime now. That’s why, you know, we’re just going to put up with it ,” said Arlene McCarty.
Further north and west, drivers in Uniontown, Pa., were battling heavy, fast-falling snow and road crews worked hard to keep up.
“This would be the first major accumulation at this point in the year,” said Chris Sleighter, PennDot.
Baltimore was deluged with rain Wednesday night that fell too fast and too much for storm drains or roads to handle. The rain caused flooding in some southern counties.
“We will be bringing in crews this evening before the snow starts and hopefully, if all goes as forecast, in the morning, by the time everyone wakes up, it will all be clear,” said Valerie Burnette Edgar, State Highway Administration.
WJZ will be on the air at 4:30 a.m. Thursday. Click here to see about any school closings or delays.
