Western Maryland is under a winter storm watch going into the weekend, with the possibility of white-out conditions and more than 6 inches of snow. That precipitation isn't expected to reach Baltimore -- but a blast of frigid wind is. A winter storm watch is in effect for Thursday night through Saturday afternoon in western Allegany County and Garrett County, including Frostburg and Deep Creek Lake. It isn't expected to dump the heavy, wet snow that paralyzed the region after Superstorm Sandy, but is raising different concerns.

* Editor's note: According to one culture, one girl's compassion creates the northern lights phenomena. Far to the north by the great Arctic Sea, there once lived a clan of people. During the coldest part of winter, these people lived in almost total darkness. The people feared this time of darkness, most of all because with it came terrible Blizzard, which could destroy anything with its icy winds and snow. Early on, the people came to be known as "the People Who Fear the Winter Night."

A blizzard was expected to dump a couple of feet of snow across New England through midday today, and while Baltimore was largely spared, the storm delivered some wintry precipitation and headaches for travelers. At Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, dozens of flights to and from the Northeast were canceled, leaving some travelers scrambling to brave snowy roads in rental cars. Others landed there Friday from points north, escaping ahead of the expected 2 feet of snow, only to find limited options for getting anywhere else.

Many of yesterday's late games were not included in today's editions of The Sun so that the newspaper could be printed early and delivered despite the snow.
