Maryland officials are urging motorists to take it easy on the roads after a storm dropped a mix of snow, sleet and rain across the state.

State Highway Administration spokeswoman Valerie Burnette Edgar says crews are turning their attention to clearing shoulders and drains ahead of a temperature drop Tuesday night. She says they are seeing people driving too fast for conditions.

The National Weather Service has received reports of 10 inches of snow in Cumberland and Thurmont and 3 inches in Baltimore.

The Maryland Transit Administration suspended Light Rail service and Metro Subway is experiencing delays because of the weather.

Maryland State Police tweet that troopers responded to 101 crashes around the state and assisted 60 disabled vehicles overnight. Police say no fatalities or serious crashes were reported.
