I don’t anticipate any local outages, but with some power lines melting slowly across a lot of ice, it could happen.
There is a wind advisory for western Maryland, which could receive some gusts of up to 50 mph. Power outages seem more likely there. Our Warning Date remains in effect for Allegany and Garrett counties.
Saturday will be sunny, but temperatures will be cold, dropping to 40s lows.
The thermometer will jump to a low of 50 on Sunday when we will also see some sunshine.
Stay healthy, stay safe and have some fun this weekend.
