Big snow doesn't show, but heavy rain causes streams to rise

December 08, 2011|From staff reports

TRI-STATE — Between 2 and 4 inches of snow had been expected to fall in most areas starting about 8 p.m. Wednesday and ending around midnight, according to the National Weather Service.

However, given the recent warm weather and road-pavement temperatures well above freezing Wednesday, state highway officials were leaning toward a "minor event" for travel Thursday morning in Washington County, said David Buck, spokesman for the Maryland State Highway Administration.

State highway officials were not anticipating problems on Interstate 81 or Interstate 70 in Washington County on Thursday morning.
