Special Weather Statement No Longer Includes MoCo; Light Freezing Rain/Drizzle Possible Overnight (Pencil Prediction Included)

by MCS Staff

The ‘Special Weather Statement’ from earlier today has been update to no longer include C/SE MoCo. It now covers areas as close as Prince George’s County with potential for hazardous commuting conditions for the Monday morning commute.

Per the National Weather Service for ‘Special Weather Statement’ areas (shown in featured photo):

“A period of freezing drizzle or light freezing rain is POSSIBLE (a 30 percent chance) Monday morning across the Baltimore Metropolitan area, northeast Maryland, and for central and southern Maryland east of Interstate 95, with a light glaze possible on area roads.

If this threat does materialize during the Monday morning rush-hour, many roads could quickly turn icy. This could lead to dangerous traveling conditions, multiple accidents, and extensive delays. If commuting Monday morning, be aware of the POSSIBILITY of significant travel disruptions. Plan ahead by allowing for extra travel time, and consider using public transportation and telework options.”

A ‘Hazardous Weather Outlook’ has been released that does include C/SE MoCo, and that states the following:

“Light freezing rain or freezing drizzle is possible late tonight for central and southern Maryland east of Interstate 95 as well as northeastern Maryland including the Baltimore Metropolitan area.”
