HAGERSTOWN — Although an accumulation of freezing rain is expected to be less than a than a tenth of an inch from about 1 a.m. through 10 a.m. today,  the National Weather Service is warning Tri-State area of potentially icy conditions.

Meteorologist Kevin Witt said Friday night that overpasses and bridges could be particularly slick because of the precipitation.

Temperatures are not expected to rise above freezing until late morning, if not until noon, Witt said.  

Precipitation was expected to begin as early as 10 p.m. in the Shenandoah Valley before arriving in the Hagerstown area after midnight, according to forecast models.
