Winter hanging tough, precipitation expected Monday

Posted: Updated:

A developing storm system will bring another round of wintry weather to our region for the start of the new work week. Expect some snow showers to develop around dawn, and with temperatures just a couple degrees below the freezing mark, the snow will once again having a hard time sticking to road surfaces.

It may snow moderately enough to lead to some slushy spots at times, but most areas will see an accumulation of a coating to 2 inches, and most of that would only stick to grassy surfaces. The exception would be in higher elevations, as well as areas to the far north and west of Harrisburg where a slushy 2-3 inches of snow may accumulate in the morning hours.

Into the early afternoon, the wet snow will transition to some sleet, followed by just plain rain and there will even be some lulls in the precipitation. That changeover will be delayed the longest, once again, across northwest counties of the region.

This evening will feature mainly rain showers, but there could be pockets of freezing drizzle as well with temperatures hovering around 32 degrees. Rain should taper off later tonight, but there could still be a few slushy spots. However, it's important to remember most of the accumulation will occur on grassy areas, much like on Saturday. A few rain and snow showers will linger into Tuesday with breezy conditions developing tomorrow as well.

Expect cool conditions to remain for the rest of the week with temperatures locked in the lower to mid 40's under partly to mostly cloudy skies.
