A low-pressure system that moved through Hagerstown on  Tuesday left almost three-quarters of an inch of rain in the area, but a cold front behind it is expected to help dry out the region, according to weather forecasters. It also appears New Year's Eve revelers might be spared any bad weather, the National Weather Service said. Although the weather service initially only forecast a tenth to a quarter of an inch of rain for Tuesday, 0.74 inch fell in Hagerstown during the day, according to weather observer Greg Keefer's website at i4weather.net . Tuesday's forecast was based on a radar reading, which can vary, said Heather Sheffield, a weather service meteorologist in Sterling, Va. The rain is expected to be followed by a cold front that will bring windy conditions Wednesday, with gusts up to 37 mph, the weather service said.

erinc@herald-mail.com The chilly air and light breeze Monday in Washington County was the area's first taste of fall weather. While it seemed more seasonable than the 80-degree days that have been common in the first weeks of September, the region's weather was indirectly affected by Hurricane Rita, Accuweather meteorologist Henry Margusity said. Moisture from the hurricane met with a cold front moving through the area and into Canada, causing light rain and wind gusts Monday, he said.
