Late April Snow

Snowfalls at Keyser\'s Ridge, MD, April 29, 2008

The cold front that triggered the severe thunderstorms in Maryland and tornadoes in southeast Virginia as it tracked through the area Monday evening also dragged in some rather chilly air. Across the higher mountains of Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia, rain changed to snow showers early Tuesday morning. The Maryland State Highway Administration’s webcam at Keyser’s Ridge in Garrett County captured the winter-like scene around 8:00 a.m. Snow was sticking to the grassy areas, trees and Interstate 68. Temperatures eventually climbed into the 40s during the afternoon, but it was an unusually cold April 29th, even for Garrett County, “The Ice Box of Maryland”.
