Up to 3-6 inches of snow is possible in northern areas. If possible, delay travel until the heaviest snow has stopped and the roads are clear. #BCoSnow
WEATHER ALERT: The US National Weather Service Baltimore/Washington has extended the previously issued a WINTER WEATHER ADIVSORY for Howard County, now in effect from 9:00 p.m., January 6th to 7:00 a.m., January 7th. Total snow accumulations of two to four inches is still forecasted. The heaviest snow is expected overnight when snowfall rates of one inch per hour are possible; visibility will be reduced to near or less than one-half mile during this time. If you must travel, please be prepared for possible slippery road conditions and make sure your car is equipped with an emergency supply kit (details on what to include can be found at www.ready.gov/car). The County's Department of Public Works' Bureau of Highways began pre-treating primary roads this morning and will work on pre-treating residential roads before the storm. While Howard County Office of Emergency Management continues to monitor the storm, you can also find the most up-to-date weather forecast by tuning to your local news TV or radio station.
Thursday night's snow is on track! Snow has spread into WVa after producing ~4" in Nashville (most since 2016!). Should arrive in DC area between 11p-1a. We're still expecting 1-3." Note: US National Weather Service Baltimore/Washington has scaled back their snowfall projections slightly and are pretty consistent with what we have now. Details: https://wapo.st/3rcTf0D
