It's a wet, snowy day in Western Maryland.

The storm may not dump as much snow in Maryland as expected, or as much as has already fallen a bit further north, though.

Traffic cameras show slick roadways and white on everything else. Forecasters are calling for 2-4 inches in Allegany and Garrett Counties, according to the National Weather Service.

Two inches were reported in Frostburg as of 7 a.m., according to a weather spotter report to the National Weather Service. Here is the spotter snow-reporting map. And here is the National Weather Service's latest snow forecast map.

A winter storm warning that had been issued for western Allegany County had been downgraded to a winter weather advisory as of 10 a.m., with the initial forecast of 4 to 8 inches reduced to 1 to 2 inches for elevations over 1,500 feet.

In the Baltimore area, forecasters had warned for a chance of flurries, but reports as of 10 a.m. are calling for rain showers.
