Flood threat wanes, staying mild into the new week

Posted: Updated:

All Flood Watches have been cancelled, and the main rivers around Central PA are expected to crest on Monday safely below flood stages. The wildcard remains to be the potential for ice jams quickly developing as the snow and ice continues to melt.

Still, on Sunday the sunshine made it almost feel like Spring, but the wind reminded us that it's still Winter. Temperatures climbed into the mid 40s around Central PA and we'll do so again on Monday, but without the winds. First, expect just a little cool down overnight as we dip into the mid 20s. After sub-zero temperatures last week that's a breeze!

Clouds will increase later Monday and that sets the stage for a showery Tuesday as a cold front approaches the Commonwealth. Highs will likely hit 50 before the cooler air settles in. There is the chance for some light snow on Wednesday as temperatures drop through the day. It's still expected to be a close call on temperatures being cold enough to allow for snow. There is the potential for a couple inches if all the stars align, but right now I wouldn't bank on that happening. If you have travel plans for Wednesday, it continues to be worth watching.

There will be another cool down later in the week, with afternoon highs in the lower 30s.
