More snow for the region this morning, but as soon as it came it left quickly! Most areas west of Harrisburg picked up an inch of snow. To the east 2-5″ of snow fell with the highest totals reported in eastern Lancaster County. The sun broke through for the afternoon and melted a lot of the fresh snow and temperatures did shoot up close to 40°. Colder air is on the move toward the Midstate though!
An arctic front will cross tonight, ushering in much colder air by Monday morning with area-wide lows in the teens expected. Some stronger gusts are also likely to last through tonight and early tomorrow morning.
The next round of light rain or snow showers comes with a fast-moving shortwave on Tuesday, with another round of potential steady snow arriving by Wednesday evening. Periods of snow or a wintry mix are possible through Friday before much colder air settles in by next weekend.
