BALTIMORE (AP) -- Transportation officials in Maryland are preparing for snow.
The Maryland State Highway Administration says crews were out Monday ahead of the snow expected for Tuesday. State Highway Administration head Melinda Peters says the snow is expected to affect travel for most of the day, including morning and evening commutes.
She says motorists should allow extra time for travel and reduce speeds.
The National Weather Service says snow of up to eight or nine inches is expected in parts of the state Tuesday.
