The National Weather Service warns of potentially hazardous driving conditions during Wednesday morning’s commute.

During the Wednesday morning rush-hour, many roads could quickly turn icy, the weather service said.

“A period of snow is expected to develop Tuesday night and continue into Wednesday morning across the Baltimore/Washington metro areas with the potential of one to two inches of snowfall accumulation on area roads,” they said.

NWS is advising commuters to be aware of possible travel disruptions from this “winter weather episode.”

“The steadiest snow from the Shenandoah Valley eastward to the metro areas should be between late Tuesday evening and early Wednesday morning, likely impacting the Wednesday morning commute,” a NWS forecaster said. “Dry air from the northwest should cause snow to cease across much of eastern West Virginia, northern Virginia and northern Maryland by mid-morning Wednesday.”

Original Story:

The National Weather Service is forecasting a potential 1-2 inches of snow for the area Wednesday.

According to NWS, there is an 80% chance of snow, which should begin overnight Wednesday morning and continue through the morning.

“With the very cold air mass in place, expect snow totals in the 1-2 inch range,” a forecaster said. “Snow will begin to taper off quickly Wednesday afternoon with most of the measurable precipitation gone by Thursday.”

NWS anticipates issuing advisories Tuesday for the potential storm.
