Commuter Alert: Workweek Begins with Wintry Mix

A wintry mix complicated the morning commute as the workweek begins.

The National Weather Service warns that a period of snow and sleet is possible after 4 a.m. on Monday.

Here’s more from the alert:

There is a potential for hazardous commuting conditions for the Monday morning commute, primarily for the western suburbs of Baltimore and Washington. A period of snow and sleet is possible Monday morning, mainly after 4 AM. Up to an inch of snow is possible through Monday morning.

If this threat does materialize during the Monday morning rush-hour, many roads could quickly turn slippery. This could lead to hazardous traveling conditions, multiple accidents, and extensive delays.

If commuting Monday morning, be aware of the POSSIBILITY of significant travel disruptions. Plan ahead by allowing for extra travel time, and consider using public transportation and telework options.
