The Arctic front swept through this morning and we have our coldest night since Christmas weekend on tap tonight! Temperatures will drop through the teen this evening with wind chills below zero at times especially for areas north of Harrisburg. Winds will start to back off late as high pressure builds in…so wind chills won’t be as brutal tomorrow morning.
The coldest period occurs Saturday when we start near 10° and climb into the 20s for the afternoon. The arctic air is short-lived and begins to exit by Saturday night. We start to significantly warm by Sunday afternoon as we approach 50°. Nearly all of next week remains mild with most days near or above 50°. Showers become possible as we head toward mid-to-late week and a front approaches, followed by some colder air next weekend. There’s an outside chance we have enough cold air for something wintry next Saturday, but there’s a ton of warm air to flush out next week…so winter lovers, keep your expectations low!
