News Release, National Weather Service
Rain will develop and change to snow late Tuesday afternoon and early evening. The snow may be briefly heavy before ending later Tuesday evening. While accumulations are forecast to be on the order of 1 to 3 inches, the abrupt transition to snow will result in rapidly deteriorating driving conditions.
Then as temperatures drop below freezing Tuesday evening, any residual moisture and slush on roadways and sidewalks will be prone to freezing, resulting in slick conditions. The greatest threat for impact from this snowfall during the Tuesday evening rush hour will be from the Blue Ridge and Catoctin Mountains eastward to the Chesapeake Bay, including the greater Baltimore and Washington Metropolitan Areas.
If you plan on commuting Tuesday 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 today.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
