Freezing rain prompts rush-hour advisory

Posted: Updated:
HAGERSTOWN, Md. -

The National Weather Service is advising rush-hour travelers in Baltimore and Washington to beware of icy roads in areas north and west of the cities.

Forecasters say pockets of freezing rain will persist into the evening Tuesday before changing over to all rain across most of the state.

The weather service says the mountains of far western Maryland will see snow after midnight. Accumulations could range from a couple of inches in Cumberland to 9 inches in Garrett County by Thanksgiving.

The Wisp ski resort in McHenry says the snow will enable it to open for the season on Friday.

Officials say Reagan National Airport is seeing some delays in flights to the Northeast. No problems are reported at either Dulles International or Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall.
