Temperatures did rise just far enough above the freezing mark Sunday afternoon to help melt some snow and ice off roads and sidewalks. But that certainly won't be the case going into Monday! Expect temperatures to fall all the way back into the upper teens late tonight, as the winds keep it feeling chilly outside. On Monday highs will be lucky to even hit the 30 degree mark. Most in Central PA will top out in the mid 20s. A combination of the snowpack region-wide, and a Canadian area of high pressure building across the region will keep our temperatures well below normal.
On Tuesday overcast skies will lead to some light snow showers in the morning hours. The snow will come from an Alberta Clipper that will speed by to our north. Accumulations from this system will range from just a coating, to near 1" possible. The best chance for accumulation would be farther north, closer to the area of low pressure. Travel should not be greatly impacted by this system as the snow will be very light, but still, given the time of day, it could be troublesome for the morning commute. There is the potential for a few more snow showers again later in the afternoon.
Later in the week temperatures start to warm. We'll likely hit 50 by Friday, before we take it back to more December-like temperatures in the 40s for next weekend. Expect a few rain showers to accompany the warmer weather.
Don't forget, Winter officially arrives on Saturday. Although with snow covering all of Central PA, it sure seems like it's already here!
