Much of Maryland—from the D.C. metro area to the Baltimore suburbs—is under a winter weather advisory Monday morning.
The advisory is in effect from 5 a.m. until noon in Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, Howard and Montgomery counties, as well as Baltimore City, the National Weather Service announced Sunday afternoon.
Temperatures are expected to be in the high 20s by midday, but morning commuters may encounter freezing rain mixed with sleet and possibly snow, according to the advisory.
Only a trace of accumulation is expected. Winds from the south will gust to 10 to 15 mph, the advisory said.
The precipitation "will cause travel difficulties," the advisory said. Drivers should use caution and "be prepared for slippery roads and limited" visibility, the forecast stated.
Sidewalks and bridges are particularly susceptible to icy conditions.
