Scoop on wind & winter weather advisories
8:45 a.m. update: Winter weather advisory canceled. Snow showers have dissipated.
From 6:50 a.m. Late overnight, the National Weather Service issued two advisories for parts or all of the metro region:
The Winter Weather Advisory was issued for the District and Frederick, Montgomery, Prince George's and Anne Arundel county until 9 a.m. for snow showers that mainly impacted the region overnight. A few light snow showers linger in eastern Montgomery County but much of the activity has diminished. Still, many roads have slick conditions from around 0.5" of powdery snow that fell in spots and stuck to everything. Temperatures are only in the upper teens and low 20s so don't expect a lot of melting. A few more snow showers could develop but, again, we're not expecting a lot more.
The Wind Advisory was issued for the entire metro region and is in effect through 10 p.m. tonight. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph are likely today with gusts of up to 45-50 mph. These gusts could make for difficult driving for high profile vehicle and cause a few isolated power outages. But what will be apparent to everyone are the bitter wind chills, likely to hold in the single digits and teens.
