Frederick, Md (KM) The Snow Emergency Plan has rescinded in Frederick County as of 1:30 PM  on Thursday.

Charlie Gischlar, a spokesman for the Maryland State Highway Administration, says the weather in the Frederick area is mostly rain with some snow. “Just up near the Frederick-Washington County line it is mixing with snow. And then of course when you get into Washington County, Allegany County and Garrett County, it’s all snow,” he says. “In fact, there’s a snows accumulation on the shoulders and some between the lanes.”

He says SHA is in full winter operation from Washington County and points west, plowing and treating the roads.

If you have to go out on Thursday, Gischlar says take it slow. The posted speed limits are set for dry conditions.

The National Weather Service says there will be precipitation Friday morning. But then temperatures will fall into the 20’s.
