Ice may coat roads before today's rain

January 12, 1994

A four-letter word is in the weather forecast again. But before the rain, you might have to deal with ice this morning.

In a revised forecast late last night, the National Weather Service said sleet and freezing rain that had been expected north and west of Baltimore City likely would affect all areas west of the Chesapeake Bay.

"The morning rush may be a rough one on untreated roads," forecaster Dick Melrose said.

A changeover to rain was expected after sunrise, heralding the arrival of warmer temperatures -- at least through tomorrow -- with highs in the 40s and lows in the low to middle 30s.

But on Friday, break out the gloves and furry parkas. temperatures are expected to drop to the coldest levels this winter. By Saturday, high temperatures in the teens are possible in the state's coldest sections and perhaps the low 20s in Baltimore, forecasters said.
