After a weekend that featured seasonal temperatures, and a lot of sun, another storm system is heading toward the Midstate. This go around, the potential winter weather will come in the form of freezing drizzle. Clouds have overspread the region with some light rain moving across western parts of the region. Expect some patchy freezing drizzle in the coldest valleys. Most areas will likely just see light rain, but be careful of any potential slick spots on the roads and sidewalks if traveling overnight.
For the Monday morning commute, some isolated pockets of freezing drizzle will remain as a potential problem, but those locations should be few and far between. Most areas will just see light rain, with temperatures rising quickly after sunrise, ending any potential freezing drizzle threat. Expect light rain showers to continue through the rest of Monday, with rather cloudy skies holding tough through the day. Afternoon highs will climb all the way to the upper 40s.
Our next weather-maker could arrive on Wednesday night, but at this point it looks to provide another glancing blow to the Midstate. A developing storm to our south could spread some snow into the region Wednesday night into Thursday, but forecast models keep the bulk of the storm out of our hair. The pattern does shift toward colder than normal temperatures by next week, so hold off on the Spring dreaming for a least a little while longer.
