Storm preparations made across Mid-Atlantic

HAGERSTOWN, Md. —  Officials in Washington and Baltimore are predicting rush-hour misery and power outages as a winter storm bears down on the Mid-Atlantic region.

District of Columbia officials said Tuesday that the 3 to 7 inches of snow expected in Washington could affect both the morning and evening rush hours Wednesday.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. says it’s preparing for power outages from wet snow and powerful winds.

The National Weather Service says Baltimore could get 3 to 6 inches Tuesday night through Wednesday.

Snowfall predictions west of Interstate 95 range up to a possible 16 inches in far western Maryland.

The region’s last major snowstorm was in January 2011. It knocked out power to tens of thousands of people and contributed to six deaths.
