Wednesday was a nice reprieve from the cold with afternoon highs in the 40s! This mild air will play a role on the upcoming front as its sends moisture our way overnight. Clouds increasing now will lead to rain showers developing after 11pm. Cold air sinking southward will switch the rain to light snow over night. See below for the timeline of details:

The timeline for early Thursday.
Snowfall forecast for early Thursday.

Most areas are likely to receive a coating to an inch of snow before the Thursday morning commute. We expect the snow to continue for a few more hours in York and Lancaster counties which may lead to higher snow amounts of 2 to 3 inches.

Colder air returns Thursday evening and a steady northwest breeze will send another round of arctic air into the northeast US. We stay seasonably cold through the weekend.

The coastal storm we have been tracking is still hugging the coast, but we are more confident this storm will stay too far east to provide any snow. Overall, a dry and cold weekend on tap!
