Milder week to melt much of the Midstate’s snow

Forecast

Much milder conditions for mid-week...

EVENING: Cloudy with a stray sprinkle or flurries. Temps near 33.

TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Stray Evening Shower. Lo 33. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: A Stray Shower, Milder & Breezy. Hi 45. Winds: W 10-15 mph, Gusts to 25 mph.

On average, much of the Midstate received 3 to 4 inches of snow Monday morning, with a few location topping at 5 inches. Clean up was quicker with the help of afternoon temperatures in the mid 30s and a stronger sun angle as we get closer to spring.

For those who needs a break from the snow, we do not expect any additional snow accumulation for the rest of this week. There will be a passing rain or snow shower Tuesday morning, otherwise much of the week will be dry and milder with highs in the 40s and 50s!

Cooler air does return for Friday which could set the stage for another wintry mix or light snow event Saturday morning, although the strength of the this storm remains in question. Either way, temperatures should climb enough by the afternoon to switch us back over to plain rain. Drier conditions are expected to return Sunday. Overall, mild air will dominate the next seven days with only a few hiccups here and there.
