BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Freezing rain on Sunday could make for very slick roads during the first half of the day. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for all northern Maryland, including Baltimore City and Baltimore County from 6 a.m. until noon.
Here is a list of all counties included: Baltimore, Harford, Cecil, Carroll, Frederick, Howard, Montgomery, Washington, Allegany and Garrett.READ MORE: Protests Continued In Maryland Saturday Over A SCOTUS Decision To Overturn Roe V. Wade
Snow was the reason for the Winter Weather Advisories on Monday and Friday but on Sunday, we’re talking ice.
Anywhere within the advisory is looking at ice accumulations of one tenth of an inch.
That may not sound like much but it is enough to make the roads very slick.
Here is the setup so far:

When precipitation arrives early Sunday and intersects with the freezing temperatures, a period of freezing rain is possible.
The timing is crucial because if the rain starts after temperatures have already climbed above freezing, it will be wet rather than icy.
It does look like there will be some freezing rain and that could make for dangerous travel conditions.
The timing is not ideal as Ravens fans make their way to M&T Bank Stadium for 1 o’clock kickoff.
