A snowy cover topped with sleet and freezing rain could make for hazardous driving conditions this morning, according to weather forecasters.
Forecasts called for 3 to 5 inches of snow to fall in Washington County by dawn today, meteorologist Tom Dougherty of the National Weather Service said. After that, the precipitation is supposed to change over to sleet and freezing rain.
"Tomorrow morning's rush hour could be a little tricky with slippery conditions," Hagerstown weather observer Greg Keefer said.
At least the snow might melt a little bit today. Dougherty said the temperature could reach the upper 30s today.
Saturday calls from more of the same, with a 40 percent chance of snow. Temperatures in the upper 30s could change that snow into rain.
