Auth. MSP the Snow Emergency Plan is in effect at 0200hrs for Carroll County


The Maryland State Police put the Maryland snow emergency plan in effect for Carroll County MD at 2 a.m.

The Maryland Department of Transportation announced that the Maryland State Police put the Maryland snow emergency plan in effect at 2 a.m. Saturday morning for Carroll County.

Previously the snow emergency plan went into effect the previous Friday evening for much of Western Maryland counties: at 11 p.m. for Allegany County; 10:30 p.m. for Garrett County and 11:30 p.m. for Washington County.

According to the department of transportation, the state police declare snow emergencies after receiving input from the Maryland State Highway Administration.

Once the snow emergency has been declared, parking is prohibited on streets and roads that are designated as snow emergency routes and the snow tires, all weather tires and or chains are required for vehicles traveling on the roadways.

When checked at 2:45 a.m., the National Weather Service forecast for Westminster and Carroll County had a “winter weather advisory posted.” “Snow before 4 am, then snow, freezing rain, and sleet. Low around 26. East wind around 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total nighttime ice accumulation of less than a 0.1 of an inch possible. Total nighttime snow and sleet accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.”

For Saturday night the weather service was forecasting mostly cloudy skies. But most importantly for Ravens fans, the Sunday forecast says, “A slight chance of rain, freezing rain, and sleet after noon. Increasing clouds, with a high near 33. East wind around 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.” And later Sunday night, Rain likely, possibly mixed with freezing rain, becoming all rain after 1am. Cloudy, with a low around 32. East wind between 3 and 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.”
