WINTER STORM WARNING for the entire region until midnight Wednesday.
TODAY: Heavy snow with a low pressure tracking to our south in Southern Virginia. 6"-12" is expected from Hagerstown to Frederick and in Southern Pennsylvania. The lower the elevation you are, the lower the snowfall amounts. The farther south you go, toward the Potomac Highlands, Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia and Shenandoah Valley, the more snow you will see. 10"-15"+ is expected there. The wind picks up during the afternoon at 15-25 mph. The combination of heavy, wet snow and gusty winds could cause some power outages. Highs will be in the low to mid 30s.
