Winds between 18 and 20 mph are also possible, with gusts as high as 32 mph, according to the NWS. 

With temperatures below freezing, small amounts of snow could possibly cause icing in spots on the road today and tomorrow, according to the Hazardous Weather Outlook for Hagerstown provided by the NWS.

There also is a chance of flurries for Wednesday afternoon and evening.
