Breezy and cold week in store

Posted: Updated:

Mifflin and Juniata Counties picked up another quick half inch to an inch of snowfall this morning, while other isolated areas of the Midstate saw a dusting.  That was all due to the remnants of a clipper system which is now past us.  This afternoon then saw the skies open up and temperatures moved above the freezing mark.  Heading into the overnight hours we can expect temperatures to drop back into the 20s, but this is still a tad bit warmer than last night.

This week will feature cold and breezy weather much of the time.  Monday and Tuesday both offer a couple opportunities for light snow.  On Monday we can expect a few flurries, especially in the higher terrain west of the Susquehanna River.  Then on Tuesday a large trough of low pressure sweeps through the Mid-Atlantic.  A coastal low pressure system then develops well to the east of the New Jersey coastline, however we could see a period of snow showers before the trough swings out to sea.

Then another clipper system and additional cold air reach the region by Wednesday and Thursday.  After next weekend there are still signs of another Arctic air outbreak, however the models have dialed it back a bit.  At this point plan for high temperatures near 20F for Tuesday through Thursday with overnight lows hovering in the single digits.
