The official snow total as of last night at Harrisburg International was 12.5″ making it our largest snowstorm since March of 2018. There were isolated reports of 16-17″ over parts of western Franklin county along with eastern Lebanon/Lancaster counties! Snow showers will linger early tonight but any additional accumulation would be minimal. Strong winds will continue though with gusts over 30 mph at times through this evening and overnight as the upper level low remains parked over New England. Temperatures will drop into the mid-20s for early Wednesday morning.
Wednesday and Thursday provide a break from the active weather, but Wednesday will still be blustery as the upper level low moves out to sea. Temperatures will gradually rise into Friday leading to the chance of a mix early Friday morning, followed by rain showers Friday afternoon. Our weather team will monitor the mix for Friday morning and have more updates throughout the next two days
Colder air returns for the upcoming weekend, and that could lead to another round of wintry weather. Another coastal low is showing up in the some long range forecast guidance for Sunday-Monday which may bring potential for accumulating snow. The pattern looks progressive however which suggests even if a storm does materialize, it won’t slow down and dump significant snow like this last one. Behind this low, another shot of sharply colder air will move in by Monday with highs only reaching the 20s. Most of next week looks much colder than normal.
