The National Weather Service is forecasting a wintry mix for early Monday, but little accumulation is expected in the Baltimore area.

According to the service's projection as of Sunday night, there's a slight chance of rain and snow in the Baltimore area, but little or no accumulation overnight, with lows in the lower 30s.

Then, on Monday morning, there will be snow in the morning, followed by rain, and then sleet and snow in the afternoon with accumulation expected to be about an inch, according to the National Weather Service.

By Monday night, the precipitation is expected to be rain only.

Areas to the west, including Carroll and Frederick counties, could see up to 3 inches before the precipitation turns to rain, the NWS said.

On Sunday evening, the State Highway Administration issued a warning for motorists to drive with caution on Monday morning, noting that precipitation ranging from rain to snow will present slick conditions and a slow commute.

Officials said SHA will track the storm and manage emergency response at the Statewide Operations Center. SHA will begin deployment of crews later tonight and monitor state-numbered routes to salt and plow where needed. As conditions change, SHA will deploy more resources to respond, officials said.
