SUNDAY: Increasing Clouds, Snow Develops After 5 PM. Winds Strengthen. Hi 30. Winds: E 5-15 mph.

It is chilly this morning with temperatures that have plunged into the lower half of the teens. When the wind blows, it feels closer to zero and wind chills will remain in the single digits for much of the day today. It will stay dry although clouds will increase later this morning and into this afternoon.

We keep the cold air through Sunday as a strengthening storm tracks northward through the Appalachian mountains Sunday morning. We still expect snow to begin in the Midstate near 5pm Sunday evening. Steady snow will continue through the evening hours which is when most of us will see the bulk of the snow accumulation. As we near midnight, warmer air along will surge into the Midstate and change the snow to rain for much of the area.

For much of Carlisle, Harrisburg, Lebanon, Lancaster and York areas, our weather team expects 3 to 6 inches of snow before the changeover to rain Sunday night. Our ridge and valley regions of western Adams Franklin, Perry, Juniata and Mifflin counties will see a longer duration of snow, accumulating between 6 to 10 inches Sunday night.

As the storm exits near daybreak Monday morning, colder air will return with occasional snow showers and flurries. Any additional snow accumulation should remain less than one inch.

Expect more weather briefings from our weather team throughout the weekend. A rain/snow mix type storm can always be tricky so we will keep you posted on any changes.
