WBOY STORMTRACKER 12 WEATHER SYNOPSIS:
Good Monday Evening! It's been a nice start to the holiday week with lots of sunshine and a few clouds, and it looks like the dry weather is going to continue as we head into the next day or so with a small chance for some precipitation heading into the middle of the week. As we work through the overnight hours tonight, with another cold night on the way. Temperatures dropping into the lower 30's in the lowlands and well into the 20's in the higher elevations. Wind Chill Temperatures making it feel just a tad bit colder heading into Tuesday Morning.
High pressure will continue to control the forecast as we head into Tuesday with mainly sunny skies. Expect the clouds to increase during the afternoon/evening clouds and with a strong southwest wind, temperatures will climb through the upper 50's well away from the mountain counties. Even our typically cool spots will rebound nicely with highs in the mid/upper 40's. by the afternoon hours.
We only just manage dry weather Tuesday afternoon/evening before the latest cold front approaches with scattered rain showers shortly after midnight Tuesday Night. Temperatures may become cool enough some snow to mix in, especially across the high terrain of Western Maryland and West Virginia. Even more cold air is expected to filter into the region in the wake of that front through the day Wednesday.
