LAUREL, Md. (WJZ) — Live racing at Laurel Park is cancelled Saturday and Sunday due to the inclement weather, the Maryland Jockey Club tweeted Friday.

Snow blanketed the Baltimore-Washington region overnight, with accumulation between 3 to 6 inches. Temperatures are expected to remain in the 20’s for much of Saturday and there’s the potential for freezing rain to hit the area on Sunday.
