SKIRT ALERT and then some today.  Wind will be our top weather story today with strong gusts enough to do minor damage to trees, cause some spotty power outages and make for uncomfortable conditions. Gusts could top 40mph at times and a wind advisory is in effect starting at Noon today until midnight. Wind chills will be in the 20s all day with steady to falling temperatures. By this evening, the wind chill drops into the teens and then single digits in the early morning hours of Saturday. A few flurries or snow showers will be possible today (mainly in the morning or early afternoon) with partly sunny skies. Plenty of sun on Saturday with a cold day and a high near freezing. Winds will be calmer on Saturday, but still breezy and cold with gusts closer to 20mph at times. Sunday’s storm is still on track to impact the Mid-Atlantic in the afternoon and continuing through Monday morning. However...... models are now showing a more consistent northerly track which would bring more of a mix for the region with lower snow amounts. Perhaps only 1-3 inches if that verifies. Not ruling out good snow altogether, but looking less likely. Late this morning, more data comes in and we will have a clearer picture. Stay tuned to the Stormwatch7 Weather Team for updates through the weekend, and if needed, I'll be in extra early on Monday for storm coverage.
