Md. warns of longer commutes because of Nor'easter

Wednesday - 11/7/2012, 4:01pm  ET

BALTIMORE - The Maryland State Highway Administration is urging motorists to plan for longer commute times because of a Nor'easter headed the state's way.

Officials say an expected cold rain may turn into snow showers Wednesday afternoon during peak travel times. Officials say any snow or sleet in the area will result in slower traffic speeds.

Officials plan to treat the roads with salt when it starts snowing, but those trucks will have to contend with the same traffic as motorists.
