Snow tapering in the northwest, continuing in the southeast

Posted: Updated:

Most of the region picked up about 1-4 inches of snow as of 2:30 p.m.

As a coastal low pressure system strengthens, much of the focus of the snow will shift eastward toward the coast.

We're already noticing drier air filtering in from the west which is where we expect light snow to fall for the rest of the afternoon.

Moderate snow is still expected in parts of Adams, York, Lancaster and Lebanon counties this afternoon and evening, with several more inches of snow likely.

Snow will end along our western counties first (Mifflin, Juniata, Perry, Franklin) late this afternoon and early this evening. It may be until 8 or 10 p.m. until the snow ends for York, Lebanon and Lancaster counties.

While the snow continues, air is cooling and winds are increasing. Temperatures are currently in the teens with wind speeds between 10-15 mph.  We expect temperature readings in the single digits overnight with the help of the fresh snow cover.

Lots of cold air and a few snow showers are in the works for the remainder of the week. I'll have more details on the rest of the week later this evening.
