Winter Weather Advisory until 1PM Tuesday

January 8th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Mixed precipitation expected. Total snow accumulations of around an inch west of Keyser's Ridge, with two to four inches expected east toward Savage Mountain and Frostburg. Ice accumulations of a few hundredths to around one tenth of an inch. Winds gusting as high as 50 mph in Garrett and Extreme Western Allegany Counties from 4AM to 1PM Tuesday.

Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning commute. Gusty winds could bring down tree branches. Precipitation will overspread the area in the predawn Tuesday. A wintry mix is expected through the morning before a changeover to rain by afternoon.

Instructions: Slow down and use caution while traveling. When venturing outside, watch your first few steps taken on steps, sidewalks, and driveways, which could be icy and slippery, increasing your risk of a fall and injury.
