Baltmore, MD — A wintry mix reached Maryland late Sunday night and will last into Tuesday evening.
A winter storm warning has been expanded to include all counties along the border with Pennsylvania, including northern Baltimore County and northwestern Harford County until 10 a.m. Tuesday.
The first part of the storm brought snow, sleet and freezing rain Sunday night into Monday.
Snow and sleet mixed with some rain will continue overnight into Tuesday, making some icy patches are possible. There will be about 1-2 inches of accumulation north of Baltimore by Tuesday morning.
Then, for Tuesday morning, a wintry mix continues followed by afternoon rain, which could become heavy, at times.
Many school systems were closed or delayed Monday due to slick road conditions.
"I'm sick and tired of it, you know? But on the other hand, I like living in Maryland, better than going off to some warmer place," said Paulette Clem.
More accidents than usual were reported on the roadways. From midnight to 3 p.m. Monday, Maryland State Police responded to 153 crashes and 46 disabled/unattended vehicles and answered 548 calls for service. The most crashes were reported to the Golden Ring and JFK Barracks, which responded to 48 and 23 crashes, respectively.
"Some of the dangers are that the drivers, all they see is kind of like a wet pavement, but there could actually be black ice under it, so they've got to really take care and drive cautiously," Howard County Department of Public Works spokesman Tom Meunier said.
"It's horrible. I don't like driving in it at all. It's just, it's scary," said Bonnie Teal.
