March 13, 2017, the National Weather Service is calling for a wintry mix of freezing rain, snow, and wind gusts of up to 50 mph beginning tonight for the Lower Eastern Shore.
The heaviest periods of rain and possible snow accumulations are expected to take place tonight through Tuesday afternoon, with winds beginning tonight and lasting through Wednesday. Power outages due to downed trees are possible with this storm.
