“The strongest winds will occur in the few hours after sunrise,” the forecast says. “Gusts approaching, or potentially even exceeding 40 mph will be possible through the morning. Winds should decrease slightly during the afternoon, but it will still remain very windy.”
Meanwhile, in Garrett County, the area near Deep Creek Lake is expected to get one of its first snowfalls this fall overnight, with 1 to 3 inches in the forecast and a low of 24 degrees. The high Monday is expected to reach 34 before it dips to 29, and another inch of snow could fall.
