Snow holding off for now in central Maryland
At the State Highway Administration's operations center in Hanover,where there's a good view of traffic conditions around the state through the agency's network of road cameras, traffic appeaqrs to be moving normally on wet but not snowy highways in most of Maryland.
The exception, as usual, is Western Maryland. Near-whiteout conditionsappear to be prevailing at Cumberland and at the interchange of Interstate 68 and Route 219.
Traffic is backed up in some areas, but it appears to be typical rush hour congestion.
Any minute now, Gov. Martin O'Malley is expected to give a briefing on the state's snow preparations.
