Gaithersburg is no newcomer when it comes to winter weather. We’ve all witnessed the meteorologists warning us about the snow and dangerous weather, and we’ve all prepared for worse before, but here’s exactly what this winter storm means for you.
The snow is likely going to start to stick around 1 p.m. and keep falling until around 3 p.m. However, there is still a winter weather advisory in affect until 9 p.m. tonight. The roads will freeze overnight, so be safe tomorrow morning. Click here to get updates on any major accidents that happen on Maryland roads.
