I am on the SE side of Westminster bear Deer Park and Rt. 32...I am about 850 feet....what is your elevation and can you show some type of a map representation of where that height of the ridge is?  Thanks

really good topography map available through the state of MD. You can pan and zoom to where you wanna look

At this point is probably not a warm layer, it’s just shallow stratus. Clouds aren’t deep enough to have ice nuclei available for snow crystals. So you get weak precipitation as fzdz. 

Of course the sounding @MN Transplant posted says I may be full of crap

Areas where I shoveled but didn't lay down some sand are REALLY icy. Almost took a spill while testing out a few spots. Elevated surfaces like fencing and plants definitely have a glaze. Still freezing drizzle - radar supports this as well. Looks to continue for a prolonged period as well.

Lol, the best part I like about being a gullible moron is that I’ll believe anyone smarter than me- which is about 99% of this board. It is possible you are both correct. 

In this case, both situations are possible. Shallow stratus and deeper clouds with a warm layer.

Alta and Snowbird just wrapped up a 90"+ week and 60 straight hours of interlodge. You snow weenies need to head west.

In jan of 96 when i lived in CO a group of us road tripped to alta during a storm cycle. 40" in 48 hours when we got there. Snowed all day and we hung out in the parking lot until it got dark. Then they closed the canyon... accidental interlodge.

Stayed right in the base lodge. Next day the canyon and mountain were closed so we were stuck doing nothing with another 30" of snow on the ground. Ski patrol said they are doing control work and will try and open some of the mountain. Lifts started running at 11am but the canyon stayed closed until much later.

There were literally less than 300 people skiing alta with over 70" of snow in 72 hours... You needed a snorkle. Literally. Amazing. We dropped cliffs everywhere and even if you landed flat on your face you would barely feel it let alone hurt anything. Damn man... those were somes times. I wish I could turn back the clock. Especially after another disaster of a storm here. Lol

30 degrees and all quiet in SE DC...icy snizzle still falling. Stuff's so hard cars don't leave tracks, people don't leave footprints. Plows came through 5 minutes after I took these pics. The scratching and crunching soothed my nerves, knowing they were out there somewhere caring for citizens.

We had one radical put out the trash. Everyone else said ++++ it.

My brother’s friend clearing his driveway at Alta this morning.  Puts my sad sleet pile to shame!

Things getting rough on the highways here.  Multi-vehicle accident caused by icy roads at the I-81 bridge including three tractor-trailers has closed the northbound lanes.  Multiple other accidents up and down the WV stretch of 81 also.  Then there are difficulties like these on secondary roads:

Hampshire Co 42 Fire, 1 / Multiple vehicles stuck / Cumberland Road at Harriotts Hill. 
Mineral Captain 37 on scene requesting FD to shut the roadway down advising multiple vehicles stuck. DOH is on location

They call those country club days. Only folks on the slopes are those that were stuck there. 

Little Cottonwood Canyon is something else. When they get a big cycle, its dangerous af w those steep canyon walls. So many slides. Those two resorts and Alyeska in coastal Alaska are my fave spots.
