Snow, rain expected in Frederick County on Wednesday morning

Jan. 24—Frederick County could see rain and snow Wednesday morning, with more than an inch of snow possible in higher elevations.

The county will likely see anywhere from a few tenths of an inch to an inch of snow, meteorologist Austin Mansfield of the National Weather Service said Tuesday. Up to 1.5 inches could fall in higher elevations in the northwestern parts of the county near the Pennsylvania border.

Higher accumulations are expected farther into Western Maryland.

The precipitation should move in between 3 and 4 a.m. and be heaviest around daybreak, starting mostly as snow, then shifting to rain in the southern and central parts of the county, Mansfield said.

It's expected to move out early Thursday morning.

High temperatures in the central and southeastern parts of Frederick County are expected to be in the low 40s Wednesday, Mansfield said.
