The temperatures are low and precipitation is in the forecast. But it isn’t necessarily snow that Glen Burnie will be seeing. An icy wintry mix is coming for all of Anne Arundel County. Expect sidewalks and roadways to begin to ice over around 3PM. Stay safe and avoid the roads if possible.

The Advisory

(From the Weather Channel)

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 PM EST THIS EVENING…

WHAT: A WINTRY MIX WITH FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET IS EXPECTED. THE ICE WILL RESULT IN VERY SLIPPERY CONDITIONS ON SIDEWALKS, ROADS AND BRIDGES. A LIGHT GLAZE OF ICE IS EXPECTED.

WHERE: THE WASHINGTON DC METROPOLITAN AREA, AND NORTHERN PIEDMONT AND CENTRAL FOOTHILLS OF VIRGINIA.

WHEN: FROM 3 PM TO 9 PM EST MONDAY.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS: EVEN IF AIR TEMPERATURES RISE ABOVE FREEZING, THE GROUND AND OTHER SURFACES ARE STILL EXTREMELY COLD DUE TO THE RECENT ARCTIC BLAST. THIS INCREASES THE LIKELIHOOD OF A GLAZE OF ICE ON SURFACES.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS: A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF FREEZING RAIN WILL CAUSE TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SLIPPERY ROADS. SLOW DOWN AND USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING. THE LATEST ROAD CONDITIONS FOR THE STATE YOU ARE CALLING FROM CAN BE OBTAINED BY CALLING 5 1 1.
