Hagerstown-area residents might awaken Christmas morning to a thin layer of ice covering local roads and the remnants of last weekend's snowstorm.

The National Weather Service forecast predicts freezing rain Friday morning.

The forecast said the freezing rain would begin after 4 a.m. Friday, then change to rain after 1 p.m.

Ice accumulation of one-tenth to two-tenths of an inch is possible, the forecast said.

Lows around 21 degrees were forecast overnight, with temperatures rising to about 34 later Friday, the weather service said.

At 9 p.m. Thursday, the weather service said that a winter weather advisory will be in effect throughout the Tri-State area from 1 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.

A winter storm watch issued earlier Thursday was no longer in effect.
