CUMBERLAND — Forecasters are warning of difficult travel conditions Wednesday as a winter storm drops what’s expected to be a mess of snow, sleet and ice on the region.
A winter storm warning issued by the National Weather Service remains in effect until early Thursday.
Total snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches and ice accumulations of one-tenth to one-quarter of an inch are possible.
Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour are expected through late this morning before changing to sleet and freezing rain.
The warning area covers portions of north central and Western Maryland, northern and northwest Virginia and the eastern portion and panhandle of West Virginia.
A winter storm warning means significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice will make travel very hazardous or impossible.
