Wintery mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain could make roads slippery today

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Carroll County and other areas of the region that will last until 1 p.m. today.

There is expected to be up to an inch or two of snow and sleet accumulation and one-third of an inch of ice accumulation from freezing rain, said Heather Sheffield, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Temperatures this morning should stay in the mid- to upper-20s. By mid-day, the freezing rain should stop and temperatures will rise to the mid-30s. They are expected to drop again to around 20 degrees tonight, said Sheffield, who spoke to the Times Tuesday night.

Sheffield said drivers should remain cautious throughout the day as roads could remain slippery due to low temperatures.

There is a chance of snow Saturday and snow is likely Sunday, according to the National Weather Service's forecasts. Temperatures are expected to remain at or below freezing for most of the week.
