The transition to this winter weather is expected to happen in the early evening hours for Southern Maryland, and later on in the evening for Central and Western Maryland.

“Our preparations for today’s winter weather are complete, and we ask Marylanders to avoid travel if possible for the rest of the day,” said Governor Hogan. “Keeping the roads clear not only keeps you safe, but it also gives crews and first responders room to carry out their duties.”
