TRI-STATE - High winds snapped trees and caused sporadic power outages across the area Monday as a slow-moving storm made its way toward the Atlantic Ocean.

Forecasters said winds likely will subside today.

Sunday's temperature hit a high of 38.6 degrees just after 3:30 p.m., and the low was 25.6 degrees, according to i4weather.net, which is maintained by Greg Keefer.

But a blast of cold weather expected to start Thursday and last into next week has Allenberg and other area growers concerned about their crops. "Sure we're concerned, but what are you going to do?" asked Donald M. Harding, owner of Harding's Orchards in Smithsburg. "There's not really anything you can do ... just pray. " Even with Monday's high temperature reaching 76 degrees, according to an AccuWeather meteorologist, it could dip as low as 24 degrees later in the week.
