EVENING: Scattered Snow & Sleet Showers, Areas of Freezing Drizzle.
TONIGHT: Scattered Snow Showers. Additional Coating To 1″, Lo 28.
FRIDAY: AM Snow Showers Ending, Breezy. Hi 37. Winds: NW 5-15 mph.
We posted a map of the snowfall reports (so far) below. The highest amounts of 6 inches occurred across southern York and Lancaster counties with lesser amounts of 2 to 3 inches across much of the Harrisburg area.
Much of this evening will see freezing drizzle, along with occasional snow or sleet showers. Many locations are reporting a glaze of ice this evening which will likely continue through midnight.
As the upper level low swings through the state overnight, some model guidance is suggesting a band of light to moderate snow that arrives before daybreak Friday morning. This band could end up as light snow showers or flurries that could produce a coating of snow, or it could be strong enough to add an additional inch of snow in spots by daybreak Friday morning. Until this band develops, it will be hard to determine the intensity of the snow. I recommend checking in with Meteorologist Brett Thackara Friday morning who will be tracking this band of snow real-time.
By the weekend, we expect a return to quiet weather though it will be cold with highs in the 30s and lows Sunday morning only in the teens. By early next week, temperatures rebound back into the 40s with a round of some wet snow changing to rain on Monday. A warming trend appears likely for next week, with highs approaching 50° by Thursday.
