Major Winter Storm has Arrived in Garrett County

The storm has taken shape over the south central U.S., and its conveyor belt of moisture has overspread the area as of 7:39am. About 1 inch so far. Snow will continue throughout the day, however it still looks as though, as least for a period later today and tonight, we will switch over to sleet and freezing rain before going back over to snow as the secondary low pressure bombs out over the eastern seaboard. The length of the period of ice will affect our snowfall totals. At this point it is looking like 4-8 inches of snow, then ice, then another 3-6 inches of snow. However, if the warm air in the upper levels does not make it as far north as forecasted, the area could see well over a foot of snow.
