MEMA preparing for a little more snow after lull


REISTERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Maryland emergency officials say heavy snows may have stopped, but people should be ready for a little more.

Maryland Emergency Management Agency Director Ken Mallette says there has been a lull in the snowfall Thursday, but he expects temperatures to drop, winds to pick up and another two inches of snow in some areas. He says there is a potential for refreezing.

The state saw higher snow amounts along the border with Pennsylvania and in Allegany, Frederick, Carroll and Baltimore counties. Mallette says people have heeded warnings to stay off roads so far, but they should give plow crews time to clear the roads.

Mallette says decisions about closings for Friday will be made later in the day, once officials have more clarity on what the next day will bring.
