TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy. Lo 30. Winds: Light.
MONDAY: PM Wintry Mix Develops. Some Light Snow/Sleet Snow Accumulations North of Harrisburg by Late Evening. Hi 43. Winds: SE 5-15 mph.
TUESDAY: AM Flurry or Drizzle, Clearing Skies and Milder. Hi 50.
Near 60° made for a great, spring-like ending for the weekend! This mild weather may also help to prevent more sizeable impacts due to wintry precipitation by tomorrow. A fresh injection of colder air arrives tonight with lows near 30°. So tonight will feature about a 30° drop before some clouds roll in early tomorrow morning.
The next area of low pressure moves in tomorrow, and we will be cold enough for a wintry mix during the afternoon and evening. Temperatures during the afternoon will initially climb to near 40°, but as the light precipitation gets going (after 2p), numbers will fall into the 30s. A mix of snow and sleet will be ongoing for much of the area, with mainly rain expected along and south of the Turnpike tomorrow evening. While temperatures will only be marginally cold enough slick spots are possible as precipitation rates look steady. Based on temperatures today though the impacts should be relatively minimal. Areas north of Harrisburg may see snow and sleet showers linger into late Monday night, but everything exits east prior to daybreak Tuesday.
Highs bounce back again toward mid-week with temperatures nearing 60 by Thursday! A front will bring a few showers followed by another storm for Friday. This one bears watching as there is potential for snow *if* the track stays far south enough. We will turn seasonably chilly for the start of next weekend with highs Saturday in the low 40s and lows in the 20s.
