Sunday, December 9, marked the date of the first snowflakes on the Lower Shore. A storm moving up the Atlantic Coast takes the blame.

The Storm was predicted to bring half an inch of snow before Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service in Wakefield, Virginia. The Maryland State police issued an emergency plan for Somerset, Wicomico, Worcester, and Dorchester counties to assist the State Highway Administration in snow clearing operations.

After the issue goes into effect, all vehicles on the road will be required to have snow chains or snow tires. There were also parking bans placed on all snow emergency route. Any car parked at these places will be towed.  

Cities include Cambridge, Salisbury, and Crisfield where up to 3 inches of snow was expected on sunday afternoon. Now, Monday, all cities only received less than half an inch of snow and there is no more snow in the forecast.
