Right now, a couple of weak storm systems are meeting over our region, and rather than forming into trouble, they both are really just getting in each others way. What that means to us: cloudy skies, with just a few flurries from time to time right through to midday Tuesday. From the red rose in Lancaster, to the Indy car in Carlisle, and everywhere in between, the weather should cooperate for outdoor events.
For most, New Years Day will be mostly cloudy with a bit more of a breeze. Temperatures will once again climb only into the 30s for afternoon highs. The best chance for any flurries would be across far southern portions of our area, likely south of the Mason-Dixon. After a cloudy start to the new year, we'll get back to a little sun for the latter half of the week. Expect partly cloudy skies to return for Wednesday & Thursday, with just a few more clouds for Friday. Another bit of good news: many forecast models were showing a cold spell for the second half of this week, and that no longer seems to be the case. Temperatures will indeed be seasonably cold, but nothing we haven't seen before in early January.
Wishing you a happy and healthy new year, from all of us in the abc27 StormTrack Center.
