First day of snow this year affects driving conditions

It has been a slow winter in terms of snow fall so far, and it does not necessarily mean the worst is yet to come, but with WTOL 11’s Weather Team making Wednesday an Alert Day, we spoke with AAA on what you need to know to be prepared.

Public Affairs Manager, Kara Hitchens said everyone should stay prepared throughout the whole winter season.

“It’s typically that first snowfall that we see the most problems, but as winter comes along, a lot of times by the end of the season, people are just over the weather,” said Hitchens.

Hitchens said drivers should expect to add time to their travel and know that there are likely to be some slick patches out there.
