TONIGHT: Becoming Mostly Clear, Cold! Lo 15. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.

THURSDAY: Cold Start, Mostly Sunny. Hi 31. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
Today was a fairly pleasant day with highs that were close to seasonable levels. Clouds will begin to scour tonight as Arctic air settles back in. Overnight lows will drop into the teens with highs Wednesday only in the low 20s. With a light wind, it will feel more like the teens for much of the day. The coldest air will be felt Thursday morning as temperatures dip into the upper single digits and low teens.
Another clipper system will bring us some scattered snow showers for Friday, but the attention early this weekend will turn to a strengthening winter storm along the coast. Where the track of the low goes will determine if our area gets some light to even moderate snow or nothing at all. Trends in the last day suggest we may get some snow, especially east of Harrisburg and toward the Lehigh Valley. Areas closer to the coast in states like Delaware, New Jersey, and southern New England could see blizzard conditions with double digit snow amounts possible. Should the storm wobble west and impact us in any way, it would be Saturday morning and afternoon.
The back half of the weekend looks chilly and breezy but mainly dry with highs around staying in the upper 20s. New England looks to be ground zero for this weekend’s storm, but again, stay tuned as we monitor the latest guidance and trends.
