More snow for western counties, snow showers here
It's easy to ignore down here, but far western Maryland counties are still being hammered by lake-effect snows. Garrett is expected to get another 8 inches tonight, and a foot in some high elevations. Western Allegany County and the town of Frostburg could see another 5 to 9 inches. That's the Honi-Honi Bar at Deep Creek Lake at left. Here are some more shots of Maryland's arctic counties.
Some of that snow could spread east of the mountains. The National Weather Service is posting a 20 to 30 percent chance of snow showers for the Baltimore-Washington region beginning after midnight tonight and continuing Friday, with up to a half-inch accumulation in spots.

Although we've been enjoying relatively mild temperatures in the 40s today, the cold front pushing through behind these northwest winds will keep readings in the upper 30s on Friday. Sunshine returns with high pressure on the weekend, but there's another low due Monday, with a chance for rain or snow showers Monday night.
The good news? Skies should clear by Tuesday, and stay nice at least through Thanksgiving.
