The NWS has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Tuesday  evening into Wednesday afternoon for central and N MD for ice accumulation. Freezing rain will start in the evening Tuesday lasting into Wednesday. Freezing rain is caused by a warm upper layer of air with a cold layer at the surface. So the precipitation falls as rain but freezes on contact. A layer of ice, thicker the further north you go from Baltimore, will form on all surfaces. 

I am also watching the potential for a significant snow event this weekend. More details later in the week. Follow me daily on Twitter (@wxmanmd) for weather tidbits and updates.
