Thursday Highway Update

I’m looking at the Maryland Dept of Transportation Live Traffic camera views on the web as I’m typing this. I-95 is clear between Washington and Baltimore, traffic seems to be moving at just about normal speeds.

The Baltimore Beltway (I-695) looks good too for the thru lanes – the exit lanes and ramps are still a bit slushy, but overall traffic is moving at close to normal speeds there, too.

Dig yourselves out carefully – looks like once you’re able to get to the main roads on Friday/Saturday travel should be almost normal.

Weather Report

Things are looking fairly good for this weekend, after the amazing snow we had on Friday/Saturday. Even though it’s projected for another snow on Tuesday/Wednesday, it’s nothing like what we just experienced.

Thursday promises to be partly cloudy with a high of 37 degrees. Friday through Sunday is mostly sunny to partly cloudy with temps of the mid to high 30s.

The interstates look pretty good for travel, and should be better by Friday morning, when most of us are traveling to Farpoint. Be safe and careful on the roads and we’ll see you this weekend.
