   The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Germantown area and all of Montgomery County for tomorrow morning. The Advisory will go into effect at 3:00 am Wednesday morning and last until 10:00 am.

   The NWS said, “Mixed precipitation expected. Total wet snow accumulations of up to half inch and ice accumulations of a trace to less than one tenth of an inch are expected.”

   “A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1,” according to the NWS.

   “The ice will result in difficult travel conditions,” said the advisory, “including during the morning commute on Wednesday. Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times.”
