TONIGHT: Clearing Skies, Stray Flurry. Lo 17. Winds: N 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: Scattered Light Snow Shower Before Dawn, Clearing and Seasonable. Hi 38. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.
Snow showers have rolled through already this afternoon, and another round is pushing in from the west this evening. So far areas north and west of Harrisburg have seen the most amount of snow, and that trend should continue as the snow struggles to get past the mountains. Otherwise flurries and lighter snow showers are possible along Route 30 and points south. A coating to an inch of snow is expected for most by the time snow showers exit this evening, with locally higher amounts (closer to 2″) possible over Mifflin and Juniata Counties. Based on observations snow may be coating the roads over Mifflin, Juniata, Perry, and northern Franklin Counties.
Monday will start off cold but dry again with temperatures in the teens. Another fast-moving clipper will approach Monday night, bringing a few more snow showers but likely nothing more than a coating to a half inch at worst. Following this, yet another Arctic front moves through Tuesday night, keeping us very cold with highs by Wednesday and Thursday in the 20s and overnight lows plunging into the teens. Thursday morning lows will be the coldest of the week with widespread single digit readings expected.
At the moment, no big storms are on the horizon, but we could get grazed with some snow toward late next Friday and into the start of next weekend. A coastal storm will brew but exactly where is unclear right now. Stay tuned for updates!
