This Nor'easter will still be a glancing blow to the midstate and will not be a big weather event for our region. Having said that, the track has shifted slightly overnight and now some light accumulations of wet snow are possible, especially east of Harrisburg.
Light rain showers or wet snow showers will develop Wednesday afternoon and pick up heading into the overnight. The farther east you are, the heavier the precipitation will become. Highs today will only be in the upper 30's and will continue to drop after sunset. This will lead to any rain showers changing to wet snow by this evening and overnight. Eastern counties are under a "Winter Weather Advisory" and we expect those areas to receive between 2-5 inches of wet snow. Areas to the west of Harrisburg will see little if any accumulation with this storm, but could still see some wet flakes. Lows tonight will be around 30 degrees.
Winds will be the biggest factor with this storm once again heading into this evening. Expect a northerly breezy to pick up this afternoon with winds between 10-20 mph. Overnight those winds will increase to 15-25 mph and shift to the northwest.
Thursday will stay windy, but it should clear out too and warm into the upper 40's. Precipitation should shut off very early in the day tomorrow. We will be keeping a very close eye on this storm all day as the track can still shift at any time. Nor'easters are difficult to forecast, but we still believe this will not impact our region in a major way.
