A strong cold front will bring cold, blustery conditions, and
additional rounds of snow showers through this evening. High
pressure builds over the region Wednesday before sliding offshore
Thursday allowing temperatures to warm. The next chance for
precipitation arrives with a front and area of low pressure later
this week.

Snow shower activity is beginning to ramp up again in Garrett County
and surrounding areas as the base of the strong mid/upper trough
swings through the area. Additional snow amounts of 1-2 inches are
possible through late afternoon, with a coating of snow possible in
other adjacent areas. Travel could be disrupted/delayed at times
along the I-68 corridor and adjacent roadways through this evening.
Heavy bursts of snow will quickly reduce visibility on affected
roadways. Elsewhere, isolated to scattered light snow showers will
continue in areas north of I-66 and east of I-95 through late
afternoon. However, any flurry activity will be light as there is a
lot of dry air at the surface, with dew point depressions at 20-25
degrees. Expect sustained northwest winds between 10 to 20 mph, with
gusts between 30 to 35 mph. Mountain locations will see sustained
winds between 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph especially at
elevations above 2500 feet.

Temperatures have reached their peak in the mid to upper 30s east of
the Blue Ridge, with low 40s in Central VA, with near to below
freezing temps elsewhere. Bitter wind chills in the mid to upper
20s east of the Blue Ridge and values in the single digits to a few
degrees below zero over the mountains.

Very cold air arrives tonight as lows drop to the teens to low 20s
for most. Those above 2500 feet will see lows in the single digits.
While winds gradually decrease overnight, they will remain elevated
and contribute to cold wind chills in the single digits to low
teens. Be sure to bundle up and protect yourself, pets, plants, and
pipes from the cold!

High pressure begins to build into the region Wednesday, then slides
offshore into the western Atlantic Thursday. Dry conditions expected
as temps slowly warm through late week. Afternoon highs reach the
upper 30s to low 40s Wednesday, and upper 40s to low 50s Thursday. A
reinforcing cold front crosses the area Wednesday afternoon, and
that could produce some increase in winds east of the Blue Ridge.
Lows Wednesday night drop to the 20s, with mostly 30s for Thursday

As an area of low pressure moves through the Ohio Valley into the
Great Lakes, precipitation (mostly rain) will spread across the
There could be a brief mix of snow and sleet at the onset in the
cooler pockets of the Alleghenies. Otherwise. rain is expected.

Brief high pressure moves in Saturday before the next system moves
through Sunday into Monday bringing renewed chances of rain.

Friday through Sunday, SW flow will bring above average temperatures
to the region, especially during the overnights where lows will be 5-
10 degrees above average.

Thereafter, a trough will move through with NW UL flow prevailing
bringing temperatures back to seasonable levels.

Sea Level — Job 38:8-11
Who shut in the sea with doors, when it burst forth and issued from the womb; when I made the clouds its garment, and thick darkness its swaddling band; when I fixed My limit for it, and set bars and doors; when I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther, and here your proud waves must stop!’
