[This post has been updated]
The Maryland Transit Administration warns that snow overnight Thursday may affect service Friday morning for riders on Commuter Bus and MARC trains. Officials plan to post an update on the MTA Web site by 4 a.m. if there are changes in operations.
The District Department of Transportation plans to deploy its snow teams at 8 tonight. Expect crews around the area to be out treating roads for the light snowfall. The Capital Weather Gang says the District may see a half an inch with more snow in areas to the north. A winter weather advisory includes Frederick, Howard County and Baltimore.
As commuters hit the roads, the snowfall is expected to have trailed off, but the possibility will exist for icy roads that could make the morning commute difficult.
Metro anticipates that it will operate normal rail and bus service around the region. However, officials caution that platforms may be slippery, and passengers should use care when boarding buses and trains.
