  • Storm Warning is over-could see some light snow & light glazing of ice today

Three to five inches of snow was expected to fall Saturday in the area mainly along and south of Interstate 80, weather officials said in a Winter Weather Advisory. They are calling for "mixed precipitation" with possible snow accumulations of one to two inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze.

The advisory is also being placed on southwest and western Pennsylvania, east central OH and northern and northern panhandle of West Virginia. Expect snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

Temperatures are expected to dip into the low 30s Saturday night and Sunday night. The Virginia Department of Emergency Management, State Police, Virginia Department of Transportation, Virginia National Guard and other pertinent agencies are already mobilizing and preparing for the impact of this storm, according to the governor's office.

Baltimore is also in the path of these heavier bands of snowfall, with 4 to 6 inches of snow predicted for Sunday. As a result, drivers were advised to allow extra travel time, reduce speeds and increase their following distances, the weather service said.

Winter Weather Advisories are posted as far south as a couple of counties in Northeastern Georgia! The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has urged drivers to limit travel Sunday so work crews can continue to safely plow and treat roads.

Slick spots on the roads will remain a concern tonight through early tomorrow morning.
