A little light snow returns to Central PA Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

The late day sun on Sunday did little to overcome the chilly temperatures. Afternoon highs only made it into the mid 40s. Compare that to mid 60s on Saturday afternoon, and you have a tale of two weekends!

Skies will stay mostly clear through the overnight with temperatures dropping into the lower 20s. Some locations sneaking into the teens isn't out of the question. On Monday we'll be treated to a very sunny day as winds finally start to relax. Still, our temperatures will be near rock-bottom for this time of year: only getting into the mid to upper 30s.

Late Monday night clouds return out ahead of our next storm system. Light snow is looking likely on Tuesday as two separate pieces of energy work to develop a batch of light snow for our region Tuesday morning through Tuesday afternoon. At this point we can expect to see anything from just a coating of snow where the lightest action occurs, to as much as a couple inches of slushy snow. The best chance to see an actual accumulation would be across eastern counties as this system gains strength Tuesday afternoon. Also, higher elevations and hilltops would stand the best chance to see the snow stick. Most areas will just see a slushy accumulation on grassy surfaces.

There is still the potential this storm could produce a more disruptive storm, but those chances are rather slim. At this point, the most likely scenario is for a nuisance round of light snow on Tuesday with minimal accumulation on road surfaces.

Temperatures return to the 40s and 50s later in the week, so any snow that does fall will quickly melt away.
