Garrett, Allegany due up to 12 to 18 inches of snow
While we marveled at a few flurries and flakes here in the Tidewater Sunday, our fellow Marylanders out in Garrett and western Allegany counties were under a Winter Storm Warning. The National Weather Service says they can expect as much as 12 to 18 inches of snow overnight into Monday.
And light snow is expected to keep coming into Tuesday. And if that doesn't sound wintry enough for you, here's the rest of the warning for the high country in Allegany County:
"* TEMPERATURES...HIGH TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON WILL BE IN THE
LOWER TO MIDDLE 20S. LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT WILL BE IN THE
TEENS. HIGH TEMPERATURES MONDAY WILL BE IN THE UPPER TEENS AND
LOWER 20S. LOW TEMPERATURES MONDAY NIGHT WILL BE IN THE SINGLE
DIGITS TO THE MIDDLE TEENS.
"* WINDS...WEST-NORTHWEST 20 TO 25 MPH WITH GUSTS OVER 40 TO 50 MPH
THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD. GUSTY WINDS WILL CAUSE BLOWING AND
DRIFTING SNOW WHICH WILL REDUCE VISIBILITY BELOW ONE HALF MILE
Mountain regions of West Virginia and south-central Pennsylvania are also under Winter Storm Warnings tonight. Check out these lake-effect snow echoes on Great Lakes radar.
