TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Stray Rain & Snow Showers. Lo 34. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.
MONDAY: Light Rain/Snow Showers. Hi 40. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.
TUESDAY: Windy, Scattered Snow Showers. Hi 40. Winds: NW 10-20 mph.
Sunday did not bring a lot of sun as clouds took over. At times radar has been picking up moisture around the Midstate, but the dry air is really chewing into any rain or snow showers through this evening/tonight. Look for the continued raw conditions through tonight with low temperatures staying above freezing. If anything wintry does develop the majority of locations should remain higher than 32° preventing accumulations.
Leftover snow showers Monday morning should switch over to light rain or drizzle by the afternoon, but temperatures will make a slow crawl only back to around 40 degrees. Meanwhile, a large nor’easter will begin to take shape as a coastal low and the upper level system come together for what could be the biggest snow storm of the year for the Northeast.
The storm will intensify over New England Tuesday, and we could see a better chance for snow showers as a wave swings around the back side of the storm. Light accumulations are possible mainly north and east of Harrisburg, with amounts going up fast as you head toward northeast PA.
This week will start off chilly with highs near 40 and lows near 30. But a ridge of high pressure will warm us up toward the second half of the week. Highs by Thursday will bounce back into the 50s with 60s expected Friday! While winter technically isn’t over yet…it’s looking more and more likely this will end up being our 2nd least snowy winter on record…only three years after our least snowy winter.
