980 millibars and falling

The central pressure of the storm off the coast has dropped another 12 millibars since my last posting…down to 980 millibars, and still strengthening.  Computer models indicate the storm should reach its peak intensity around 1:00am Friday as it moves west from off the ocean toward New York City.  As the storm approaches very windy conditions are expected overnight and during Friday.  The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning for Maryland west of the bay, a Wind Advisory for the eastern shore, and a Blizzard Warning for western Allegany County.  Snow will also return to much of Maryland with a few inches possible on Friday.
