The last week of January will bring a large variety of weather to the midstate, including a wintry mix to begin the week.
Light snow will fall during the pre-dawn hours and leave behind around a coating to 1 inch before changing to freezing rain. The morning will then feature light and steady freezing rain, which will create a glaze of ice. Temperatures will gradually warm above freezing, but not until the afternoon, which is when a few plain rain showers will move through the area. Highs today will be in the mid 30's, but it will be a while before we warm to those levels.
Be careful driving around the area today.
A surge of very warm air will then push through the state tomorrow and Wednesday. High temperatures by Wednesday afternoon will be very close to 60 degrees. However, we will also have to deal with lots of clouds and some rain showers, especially by Wednesday evening when a cold front will bring a period of rain and even the chance for thunderstorms.
Cold air will follow the cold front so we can expect a cold and blustery ending to the work week. As we look ahead to next weekend, we expect more cold conditions with high temperatures in the low 30's, as winter will return once again.
