Storm Chances Still Unresolved; Bitter Cold to Follow
A very complex weather situation is evolving over the south central US this morning. A series of shortwaves are forecasted to round the base of the eastern trough and there is still no model consensus as to whether any of the individual shortwaves will develop and move far enough north to impact Garrett County. At this point, it looks likely the area will receive an inch or two today from the first impulse and possibly more Friday through Friday Night, depending on the track of the second impulse. Nonetheless, this weekend an arctic front will again visit the region, bringing with it the coldest temperatures of the season so far. Saturday night, lows will most likely dip below zero and Sunday, highs will only make it into the single digits.
