Portions of Maryland north and west of I-95 could see some light freezing rain overnight, but most of the region will get no more than a cold rain, forecasters said.

The National Weather Service posted Freezing Rain Advisories, effective from 1 a.m. until 10 a.m. Saturday, from Allegany County in the west to Harford County in the east. Montgomery and Howard counties and Baltimore City are also in the advisory zone.

Less than a tenth of an inch of icing is expected, but freezing rain and drizzle could cause some "travel difficulties," forecasters said. Up to a quarter-inch of rain is possible across Central Maryland before the precipitation ends Saturday afternoon.

The storm is part of a winter system that is forecast to drop snow from the Ohio Valley to Western Maryland and much of Pennsylvania, New York and New England. Portions of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine could see up to 10 inches.
