Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Anne Arundel County Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Anne Arundel County

It wasn't a white Christmas, but snow started falling in Edgewater and Davidsonville on Wednesday morning. 

All of Anne Arundel County is under a winter weather advisory from the National Weather Service (NWS) until 1 p.m., and roads throughout south county were looking pretty sloppy in some parts. 

Residents throughout the area tweeted pictures and posted photos on Facebook. As the morning went on, the snow turned into a more unruly form of sleet and/or freezing rain—something the NWS said to be careful with. 

"A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties," according to the release. "Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities."

NWS stated that people should expect a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Forecasters predict that a mix of freezing rain and sleet will continue throughout the afternoon.

The advisory extends to Northern Baltimore, Harford, Montgomery, Howard and Prince Georges counties.

Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) asked motorists to keep their speeds down and to "exercise extreme caution."

People traveling toward western Maryland and points further west should expect higher amounts of snow and should plan accordingly due to winter storm Euclid.
