Snow shower chances faded quickly as the main area of snowfall diminished over the mountains. Western Maryland and West Virginia got a decent dusting, but the rest of us just got the cold as expected. The arctic blast moved through about 6a.m today and our winds started gusting between 20 and 30mph. It will stay breezy and cold today with any rain/snow chances ending after the noon hour. Clouds will start breaking this afternoon with a little sunshine possible by the end of the day. Clear skies overnight will lead to a cold night below freezing for all.
Temperatures remain unseasonably cool Wednesday with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid 40s. Temperatures will gradually moderate the rest of the week and warm up to near average (59) by Friday.
