FREDERICK, Md. (WJZ) — A winter weather advisory was issued for Frederick and Washington counties from Friday morning through Saturday.
Freezing rain is expected with total ice accumulations of up to two-tenths of an inch. There could be a small accumulation of snow.
The winter weather advisory will be in effect from 10 a.m. on New Year’s Day through 1 a.m. on Saturday.
After a damp December 3120, the few hours left of our 2020 will be dry. Temperatures will bottom out near 30 overnight.
2021 is off to what should be a wet start. Rain will move in midday and we won’t dry out until late Friday night.
The rain won’t be particularly heavy but it will be much more widespread and persistent than Thursday’s scattered showers.
There is a possibility for a period of freezing rain but it looks like it will be limited to western Maryland.
Temperatures should be above freezing for the Baltimore area before the precipitation moves in.
Mild air is on the way for Saturday with highs headed for the upper 50s to right around 60. Enjoy it if you can because temps tumble by the second half of the weekend.
