Snow will develop late Thursday afternoon and continue through
late Thursday evening. While accumulations are forecast to be
light, on the order of 1 to 2 inches, any untreated road surfaces
and sidewalks may turn icy as temperatures fall below freezing
after sunset.

The greatest threat for impact from this light snowfall during
Thursday rush hour will be northwest of both the Baltimore Beltway
Interstate-695 and the Capital Beltway Interstate-495, and west
of Interstate-95 from the Susquehanna River Bridge in northeast
Maryland to Fredericksburg, Virginia.

If you plan on commuting Thursday evening, be aware of the
potential for travel disruptions. Plan ahead by allowing for
extra travel time, and consider using public transportation and
telework options.

Stay tuned for future updates on this winter weather event, and
the potential for Winter Weather Advisories to be issued later
tonight and/or Thursday morning.
