Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for much of western and central Pennsylvania into far western Maryland. Amounts will range from 1-3 inches in the hills outside of Cumberland, Md., to 3-5 inches in places like Frostburg and Westernport, Md., to a foot along the highest ridges of Garrett County, including Keyser’s Ridge and Backbone Mountain. Farther north, 9 to 15 inches will fall in places like Somerset and Johnstown, Pa., with up to 18 inches along I-80 in northern Pennsylvania. For a full breakdown check out{ }Chad Merrill’s blog on the nor’easter.

For most of the region though, the nor-easter has provided much needed, long over-due rainfall. As the system continues northward today, most of the steady rain will end. It will remain very gusty and chilly with a few brief breaks of sunshine, especially south of Washington. Our area will still be affected by this storm-related pattern tomorrow with more clouds than sunshine but it will become somewhat milder. Pleasant weather will return on Wednesday before another cold front brings the chance for more showers on Thursday.
