The snow has ended. Now temepratures will fall well below freezing and icy spots will be possible...especially on bridges.

Tonight:
Breezy and colder 
Lows: in the 20s
Wind: Becoming North at 10-20 mph
Wednesday:
Becoming Mostly sunny, very breezy and cold
Highs: around 40 degrees
Wind: N/Northwest 15-25 mph with gusts to 40
Thursday:
Mostly sunny and milder...still breezy
Highs: lower 50s

The snow is slowly diminishing and moving to the east as the big ocean storm starts to power up. There could be a few areas near the western shore of the Bay that may get another inch or so but anything more than that will be on the Eastern Shore. Anywhere from a trace to 4 inches of snow have been generally reported today. During the overnight, northerly winds will increase and skies will begin to clear. The gusty winds will dry a lot of surfaces. But temperatures falling into the 20s could from some ice patches. Be careful!!  The high angle sun(even with the overcast today) and the warm roadway temperatures (we showed on air yesterday) combined to keep nearly all roadway wet rather white. Now, this powerful storm will take it high winds and heavy snow to the Canadian Maritime provinces.

Tomorrow will be sunny, windy and unseasonably cold. But the sunshine will melt the snow it shines on and the winds will dry up most roadways. Temperatures will fee like they are in the 20s even though temperatures will reach 40 degrees. That is a few degrees warmer than today but will be 20 degrees colder than average. Warmer temperstures though, are on the way.
