Winter Weather Advisory Issued MoCo; Monday Morning Commute May Be Messy

February 10, 2019

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Germantown area beginning at 7:00 pm Sunday night, February 10 until 10:00 am Monday morning. A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. “Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions will impact the Monday morning commute,” said the National Weather Service.

   National Weather Service said that Snow, sleet and freezing rain are expected, with total accumulations of 1 to 2 inches and ice accumulations of less than a tenth of an inch expected.

   A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Expect slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

   The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration is closely monitoring and deploying state and contractor workers for a two-part storm that will affect Maryland later Sunday and continuing into Tuesday. The freeze line is still uncertain, and motorists should make smart travel decisions.

   MDOT SHA has completed pre-treating operations throughout much of the State. Forecasters are predicting snow, ice and rain before the system moves out of the State on Tuesday afternoon. The storm will move west to east with the northern and western tier of the State poised to received higher accumulations. Areas of mixed precipitation will affect most of central Maryland, especially during the Tuesday morning commute, where conditions may deteriorate before warmer air reaches the state.

   Motorists are reminded that elevated road surfaces (bridges, ramps and overpasses) freeze first. Drivers should also ensure tires are winter ready and there is ample fuel if travel is necessary.
