We stay on the southern edge of this low pressure system that continues to push eastward, producing scattered upslope snow flurries in the northern mountains this afternoon and evening. Snowfall there will eventually finish up after midnight tonight. Could see an additional 2-4" in Preston, Tucker and Garrett counties tonight. Otherwise, another very cold night is on deck with lows in the teens and winds west at 15-20 MPH. Clouds break for mainly sunny skies on Thursday with highs pushing into the mid/upper 30s. We've been watching the next cyclone, which has been well-advertised for several days now. This storm will dump nearly two feet of snow on parts of Kansas and Nebraska in the next  12-36 hours. As it makes its way into the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic states Friday, we'll see mixed precip including rain, mountain snow, freezing rain and sleet. Depending on the timing of the moisture and overnight lows Thursday night, we could see some messy travel conditions throughout the day on Friday. Will keep a close eye on that system as it wreaks havoc on the Midwest & treks eastward. More on that later...Warmer with highs in the upper 40s/low 50s this weekend!
