The weather will be a chance of showers before noon, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a high near 76 and a low around 62. Calm wind becoming south 5 to 7 mph in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

Recent electrofishing surveys recently took place at Deep Creek Lake and Broadford Lake. Both showed healthy populations of fish, and Deep Creek Lake showed an excellent population of trophy-sized bluegills and largemouth bass. A standout at Broadford Lake was the population of large crappie waiting for anglers.

A reminder that all local lakes are monitored for water quality by the Garrett County Health Department. If the E. coli count is above the threshold recommended by the US EPA, then a swim advisory will be posted on the beach. See current advisories at the state website.
