Mid-Atlantic region preps for snow, sleet, freezing rain in time for evening rush hour


WASHINGTON — The mid-Atlantic region is preparing for another shot of snow, sleet and freezing rain in time for the evening rush hour.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory in effect in the Baltimore and Washington metropolitan areas from noon Tuesday through the evening. The weather service warns that travel will be dangerous on roads likely covered by ice and snow. Similar conditions are expected in northern Delaware, where the weather service warns even light icing could make travel hazardous.

Transportation officials urged motorists to monitor forecasts and change travel plans if necessary.

The federal government in the Washington region is open, but workers have the option of taking unscheduled leave or teleworking. Several school systems are canceling evening events and a few are closing early.
