UNDATED- The Maryland State Highway Administration said it is plowing and treating state highways as the winter storm continues to affect much of Maryland.
Drivers are cautioned to delay travel, especially south and east of Washington, D.C. where snow is currently falling. Along many roads, snow slush and snow pack cover roads and ramps, and even where asphalt is visible, drivers may encounter slick conditions. The SHA said it has deployed more than 2,700 trucks on the road and is monitoring conditions and deploying resources from its Emergency Operations Center in Hanover.
Motorists should use extreme caution as brief, heavy bands of snow can cause sudden, temporary whiteout conditions. Monday night, as temperatures drop into the single digits, icy conditions are possible and extreme caution is advised.
