Thanksgiving ice coats western Maryland

By Jason Samenow

Freezing rain glazes trees in Garrett county, Md. yesterday. By Tim Craig

As a warm front pushed over a shallow wedge of cold air yesterday morning, a wintry mix of precipitation fell in central and western Maryland as well as northwest Virginia where temperatures hovered near freezing.

Spotty sleet was reported as close by as Montgomery and Fairfax counties early Thanksgiving morning. The closest reports of accumulating wintry precipitation came from Allegany county in Md. where between a trace and 0.2" of snow fell followed by as much as 0.8" of freezing rain. Further west, in Garrett County, the Post's Tim Craig reported yesterday: "Everything is coated in ice. Interstate 68 is fine, and just wet, but pretty thick ice on all the trees and grass."

I'm in Montgomery Village and heard the sleet coming down Thanksgiving morning during a not-quite-asleep period. It had all melted by the time I got up and went out to get the paper.
