Light snow brings taste of winter to Midstate

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Latest Update: 11:00 PM

**Winter Weather Advisory For Tuesday Morning for a Coating to 3" Region-Wide.**

Overnight: Increasing Clouds, Light Snow Developing After 4 am. Low 30.

Tuesday: Morning Light Snow, Possibly Mixed With Rain At Times. Snow wraps up by noon. Afternoon partial clearing. High 36.

A developing low pressure system will slide across the Tennessee Valley, and into the Midstate overnight. Expect snow to be falling through the morning commute, and the timing could make for some slick spots. All told, the storm is a fast mover, with precipitation wrapping up by midday, and maybe ending as a few rain showers. Temperatures are right on the borderline, so some rain may even mix in with the snow at times through the morning. The best snow accumulations will be on grassy surfaces, but some may stick to the roads through the early morning. There is the potential for some bands of moderate snow to develop. These locations could see the higher end amounts closer to 3", and they are highlighted below.

Total snowfall accumulations look to be a coating to a couple of inches across much of the Midstate, with a narrow strip of potentially 2-3" along a line from Gettysburg out toward Lebanon City. Again, most snow will just stick to grassy surfaces.

After a brief batch of wintry conditions, temperatures will return to the 40s for highs later in the week, melting any snowfall. Expect highs to reach 50 by the weekend.
