Forecasters call for 4-8 inches of snow today

January 25, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A winter storm moving up the Atlantic coast from the Carolinas last night was expected to drop four to eight inches of snow on central Maryland today, with about three inches forecast for the morning rush hour, according to the National Weather Service.

The snow was expected to begin falling about 3 a.m. today.

"We've got a warning out for the whole area, with most of the snow in southern and central Maryland," said Phil Poole, a weather service meteorologist stationed in Sterling, Va. "We're calling for 4 to 8 inches, but I'd lean on the high side of that."

Snow will end by early afternoon, according to Poole. "It will be pretty in the morning," he said. "But I wouldn't want to be driving in it."
