February 20 2019

We are under a Winter Storm Warning under much of the area today. Now that the snow has broken through the dry air, you may have seen it intensity quickly. At 9:30 AM, thunder snow was reported in Hagerstown. Snowfall rate could be over 1 inch per hour at times. The cold air and quick stickage is already making for slick travel. Even if you were a doubter earlier, you should be a believer now. FITF

Do you want to know if if your street is about to plowed or salted? 

The expectation for sleet and freezing rain on top of this mid day and through this evening will add another dimension of road clearing. Eventually there will be a transition from plowing to salting. MDOT SHA has their new S.T.O.R.M app online so you can track the location of road crews across the state of Maryland.

This was developed by WBCM. See more about this local company and what else they built to help you below.
