Winter Weather Alerts:
The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh, PA & Baltimore/Washington, D.C. have issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the following counties in the Your Local Weather Leader Viewing Area through 7:00 PM Tuesday Night:
In Maryland: Garrett & Western Allegany
In West Virginia: Western Grant & Western Mineral
As an arctic front moves through the area, we will see snow showers develop across the higher elevations, and that will leave a light accumulation (2-4 inches of snow) possible in those areas through Tuesday Evening.
A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow will primarily cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

Weather Synopsis: It was a pretty nice day across the area today, but those clouds will be on the increase tonight, and big changes to make it feel more like November are on the way as we get into the nighttime hours tonight. An arctic cold front will cross the region tonight, and bring much colder air, and some precipitation overnight tonight and into Tuesday Morning. Most of us will see some rain showers with a changeover to a few snow showers. No accumulation is expected, except for West of the Allegheny Mountains, where in the higher elevations, 2-4" of snow is possible through Tuesday, as we get the upslope component to the snow once again. Tuesday will also feature windy conditions, and with our air temperatures at or sightly below 40 degrees, our wind chill factors will be in the 20's and 30's. More sunshine will prevail as we get into the middle portions of the week, with our next chance of precipitation we're going to see after what is expected in the next 24 hours, as we get into the latter portions of the weekend and early next week.
Have a great Monday Evening and I will see you on WHAG News at 7:00 and 11:00 PM!
