Maryland officials are urging motorists to stay home while crews clear a mix of snow, sleet and rain from roads across the state.

State Highway Administration spokeswoman Shantee Felix said Tuesday morning that crews are plowing in the western part of the state where there's more snow and salting elsewhere. She says they're asking people to stay home until 10 a.m. or noon.

Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency in Maryland on Monday. The National Weather Service is predicting 4 to 6 inches of snow in Baltimore and 12 to 18 inches in Hagerstown.
