Six inches of snow fell in Severna Park during the storm that swept through the region Thursday night into Friday morning, among the highest snowfall totals reported in Anne Arundel County.

Birdsville, Deale and Edgewater also recorded 6 inches of snow, according to the weather service's preliminary snowfall count report.

Anne Arundel County received between 3.5 inches and 6 inches of snow.

The highest reported total in Maryland was in Harford County, where 7.5 inches were measured in Norrisville.

The snowfall led to the closure of schools in Anne Arundel County and safety warnings from government officials.

The State Highway Administration warned motorists Friday morning to avoid plows clearing roads and to use caution on the roads.

“The main concern facing motorists this morning is blowing snow that can quickly cover recently plowed lanes,” said SHA Administrator Melinda B. Peters, in a statement. “Motorists need to have realistic expectations and use heightened caution and reduce speeds. Crews will continue applying chemicals but we warn people that any snow packed areas will be very slow to melt, even with salt or salt brine on the road.”
