HAGERSTOWN - A National Weather Service meteorologist said Wednesday that he is confident people in Hagerstown will see snow this afternoon.
"It looks like the first snow showers are going to move in through the day Thursday," meteorologist Brian Lasorsa said.
He said areas west of Washington County, because of the mountains, will have snow for a longer duration, possibly lasting into Friday.
The National Weather Service is predicting minimal accumulations.
"It looks like it should be dry on the weekend," Lasorsa said.
With winter weather approaching for the season, agencies that plow or remove snow are reviewing policies, and many are posting those on their Web sites.
The "snow-fighting guidelines" in the City of Hagerstown and Washington County are similar, City Public Works Manager Eric B. Deike said.
