Arctic Front Will Usher In Coldest Air of Season and Gusty Winds

A strong cold front will cross the Washington Area this evening ushering in the coldest air of the season thus far. Winds may briefly gust between 45 and 55 mph along with heavy downpours and a clap of thunder as the cold front crosses your community.

Behind the front, gusty winds will continue through the midday hours on Monday while accumulating snow falls across the Allegheny Highlands including places like Garret county Maryland. The images below (courtesy WxBell) show the potential snowfall accumulation from the Weather Prediction Center (WPC).

Monday will start out in the 30s and temperatures will struggle to reach the middle 40s during the afternoon.

Windy conditions will continue through the midday hours with a few gusts over 45 mph possible.

The wind combined with temperatures in the 30s and 40s will drop wind chills into the 20s and 30s – bundle up!
