EVENING: Showers Develop From Southwest to Northeast After Sunset. Hi 47.
TONIGHT: Periods of Rain. Lo 36.
THURSDAY: Periods of Rain, Mainly In the Morning. Hi 54.
Rain is now moving into the Midstate with the possibility of a few pockets of snow in higher elevations. Any wintry precip. will quickly changeover to all rain tonight as warmer air floods in aloft. As the system’s cold front passes through Thursday, some briefly heavy downpours will be possible during the morning before drier air moves in for the afternoon. Before the cold air arrives tomorrow night, highs may reach well into the 50s.
A sharply colder air mass moves in for Valentine’s Day and Saturday but the cold snap will be short lived. As the transition occurs Thursday night there may some flurries or snow showers mainly north and west of Harrisburg. The rest of the weekend looks dry, but cold. Highs Friday may not make it back to freezing and lows Friday night will likely drop to our coldest levels so far this season (which really isn’t saying much).
Milder air returns Sunday afternoon as highs rebound into the 40s and it appears this trend continues through early next week. Dry weather will be replaced by scattered showers on Tuesday as highs once again climb back into the 50s.
