Tuesday's snowfall prompted officials to cancel several scheduled events, including the Hagerstown City Council work session and the Waynesboro (Pa.) Area School Board meeting. On the primary election front, the hours at polls were extended 90 minutes in Washington County because of icy road conditions. Ken Reeves, an AccuWeather meteorologist, said the weather is expected to improve by Thursday, when temperatures are expected to reach 40 degrees. The warmer weather will cause snow that accumulated Tuesday to begin melting, he said.

HAGERSTOWN - Predicting the weather can be a thankless job. If the weather is good, National Weather Service forecaster Jim DeCarufel said, he "rarely" hears about it.
