Snow delays some schools in Southern Maryland, dusts Baltimore region

Schools in 9 Maryland counties are delayed Monday after overnight snow.

Baltimore's suburbs saw a dusting of snow overnight while Southern Maryland saw enough snow to delay schools Monday morning.

Schools are delayed in nine counties in western and southern Maryland, as well as on the lower Eastern Shore.

A light snowfall began after dark Sunday and continued into the morning rush hour. Recent warm temperatures, however, will limit the accumulation.

"Right now, most of the snow will stay south of the city," National Weather Service meteorologist Ray Martin said.

Schools were two hours late in Allegany, Calvert, Caroline, Charles, Dorchester, Garrett, Prince George's and St. Mary's counties. Talbot County schools were on a 90-minute delay Monday.

The most accumulation, 2 to 3 inches, was forecast for Anne Arundel, Prince George's, Calvert and Charles counties. Temperatures during the morning commute were right around freezing, and the snowfall had mainly ceased as motorists began the work week.

"There may be some icy patches on the roads," Martin said. "We'll have to see how much falls and how cold it gets."
