December 8, 2017, the National Weather Service is calling for snow accumulations tonight ranging from 2 to 5 inches for the Lower Eastern Shore. The Maryland State Police (MSP) instituted the Worcester County Snow Emergency Plan effective Friday, Dec. 8, at 9 p.m.

Parking will be prohibited on roads and streets designated as snow emergency routes. Vehicles traveling on these roads should be equipped with all season radials or snow tires.

The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office and Worcester County Emergency Services (WCES) urge residents to remain indoors and stay off the roads until storm conditions subside.
