Two inches of snow recorded in county



A storm moving up the East Coast dumped more than two inches of snow on Washington County Monday, closing schools and causing minor traffic accidents.

Hagerstown City Police, Maryland State Police and Washington County Sheriff's deputies reported several fender benders across the county.

Washington and Frederick County school districts were closed for the day.

So far this season, Hagerstown has received 16.8 inches of snow, according to Hagerstown Weather Watcher Greg Keefer's Web Site.

Monday's high reached 43 degrees, which helped melt much of the snow on area roads.

Milder weather is expected for the rest of the week, said forecaster Parks Camp of the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va.

The high today and Wednesday is expected to reach the upper 40s. There is a 30 percent chance of rain today, he said.
