In the immediate area, snow and sleet will transition to mostly sleet midday to early afternoon and rain by early to mid-afternoon, from southeast to northwest Total snow/sleet accumulations should be around 0.5 to 2 inches in the immediate area, 1 to 3 inches in our north and west suburbs, and 3 to 6 inches toward northern Maryland and Interstate 81. This is the boom scenario. Temperatures will hover around freezing through mid-afternoon so untreated surfaces will remain slick until rain starts to wash the slush away later today.
