A mix of snow and freezing rain has been falling around Harford County on Friday morning, coating the ground and trees and shrubs.

Roadways were slick but passable, as the wet stuff arrived while the morning commute was in full swing.

By 12:30 p.m., however, the snow had pretty much playing itself out in Bel Air, leaving less than an inch on the ground and none on the streets and sidewalks.

The snow did fall for several hours, and people who had been enjoying the spring-like weather of recent days could be seen walking around bundled up against the snow and temperatures in the 30s.

Rain started falling in the western part of the county just before 7 a.m., following by sleet and wet snow, as temperatures hovered around the freezing mark.

The temperature in Bel Air was 34 degrees at 9 a.m.

Near Jarrettsville, the wintry mix covered the grass, shrubs and tree branches. Many trees and spring flowers have just begun to bloom this week.
