Roads wet and slushy from a late-season snow were expected to become icy overnight, with one more frigid and windy day ahead Wednesday before a return to spring weather. Though snow fell most of the day Tuesday across the Baltimore area, accumulations were scant. Just two-tenths of an inch piled up at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport as of 8 p.m., adding little to a seasonal tally that is an inch and a half shy of topping the 40-inch mark, surpassed in only 13 winters on record here.

WHEN THE GREAT Tom Tasselmyer came on the other night, his face a study in concentration as he stood before the wind-chill-readings map, I knew it was going to be bad. On the other TV stations, coverage of the cold snap was already at DefCon 4 levels. Shivering reporters, bundled up as if they were covering the Iditarod race, stood on frozen street corners delivering live updates, clouds of steam billowing from their mouths. There were reports on how the cold would affect the homeless, senior citizens, pets, motor vehicles and, most importantly, the NFL playoffs, because God forbid that the cold should inconvenience professional athletes making millions of dollars and their fans.

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians finally got their comeuppance last night. They reached the 93rd World Series with the help of a run-scoring blown squeeze play and a two-run wild pitch. It was only a matter of time before the ball started bouncing the other way.It bounced all over the place under near-freezing conditions at Jacobs Field, and it didn't stop bouncing until the Florida Marlins had come from four runs down to score an ugly 14-11 victory.Actually, it didn't stop bouncing until a last-gasp Indians rally came to an end with the tying run on deck, but you get the idea.

Bill Appelbaum, a reader in Catonsville, thought he'd spotted a typo: "How can [the] wind chill index be 8 degrees lower than the air temperature if there's no wind?" It can't. But that's what our Thursday Weather Page said. So I called Weather Central, which provides our data. They discovered their computer coding was entering dewpoints (used with temperatures in summer to calculate heat index) as wind speeds. So Wednesday's 55-degree temperature and 51-degree dewpoint yielded a "wind chill" of 47 degrees.
