EVENING: Increasing clouds and mild. Temps in the 40s.
TONIGHT: A few showers, not as cold. Low 38.
FRIDAY: Colder and windy. Northwest winds 15-25mph, high 40.
I am certainly grateful for great weather we experienced on Thanksgiving Day. From morning turkey trots to afternoon hikes, the milder respite was welcome by many. We stay mild tonight as an approaching cold front brings a few light showers into the Midstate. Rainfall amounts should remain less than a tenth of an inch.
By early tomorrow morning, showers will wrap up and much colder air will rush into Pennsylvania. Winds will increase with gusts over 30 mph at times during the afternoon. It’s not out of the question that we see a few flakes fly Friday as cold air blows in some lake-effect snow showers from Lake Erie.
We stay breezy Saturday morning with many locations dropping into the 20s. The winds will decrease moving into the afternoon as we prepare for a quick moving clipper system Saturday night. We are forecasting light snow across our northern counties north of Harrisburg Saturday night, with scattered snow showers over the entire viewing area Sunday morning. Any snow accumulation will be light, but an inch may accumulate for our Ridge and Valley region. Our weather team will have more details throughout the holiday weekend so be sure to check back!
