WEATHER

As yesterday's storm pulls away to the northeast, the area will still be under cloudy skies with a chance of a shower or two, including the possibility of snow showers. Don't panic, you won't need to stock up on toilet paper and milk because they'll be no accumulation. The high will top out at 41, and overnight the mercury will sink to a chilly 32. Blustery northwest  winds will be from 10 to 20 mph. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/weather/weather-blog/bal-wx-weather-wednesday-showers-possible-20141210-story.html
