Annapolis, MD (February 28, 2019) – The National Weather Service is predicting that Annapolis may see overnight snowfall that could significantly impact the morning commute.

By afternoon, the winter storm will likely become a rain event.
The City of Annapolis Public Works Department is fully prepared. Crews will be on the job starting at 4 a.m. on Friday morning, with additional crews reporting at 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. Friday morning.
