Winter Weather Advisory

Statement as of 11:37 am EST on February 12, 2016

... Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 6 PM this evening to
midnight EST tonight...

The National Weather Service in Baltimore MD/Washington has
issued a Winter Weather Advisory for snow showers... which is in
effect from 6 PM this evening to midnight EST tonight.

* Precipitation type... snow showers.

* Accumulations... a coating to an inch.

* Timing... snow showers are most likely between 6 PM and 8 PM
across north-central Maryland into the northern and western
suburbs of Washington and Baltimore. Snow showers are most
likely between 8 and 11 PM inside the beltways of Washington DC
and Baltimore and along and east of the Interstate 95 corridor
from the Susquehanna River in northeast Maryland to
Fredericksburg Virginia.

* Impacts... below freezing temperatures will allow for snow that
falls to stick on untreated surfaces. This means untreated roads
will become snow covered and icy this evening... making travel
difficult. Additionally... untreated sidewalks... parking lots... and
walkways will become hazardous for pedestrians.

* Winds... south around 5 mph through this evening. Winds will
become northwest with gusts to 30 mph toward midnight.

* Temperatures... upper 20s to lower 30s this afternoon.
Temperatures fall into the lower and middle 20s this evening
with snow.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Stay informed and exercise caution when driving in any snow
showers this evening... especially on untreated roads. Even a small
snow accumulation will cause untreated roads to become icy.
