EVENING: Light snow, increasing in intensity. Temps in the lower 30s.
TONIGHT: Snow, 2-5″. Lo 27. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.
FRIDAY: Clearing & Blustery. Hi 32. Winds: NW 10-15 mph. Gusts to 30 mph.
***10:30pm Update: Heavier snow bands developed across parts of Franklin, Adams and York counties earlier this evening. This is where we expect the highest snow totals with some locally higher amounts of 6-7″ overnight***
Clearing skies and cold, blustery conditions arrive for Friday with highs barely climbing above freezing. It will continue to be cold and dry Friday night through Saturday.
There will be plenty of cold air at the surface Sunday morning to allow for a period of freezing rain starting Sunday morning. We are still working on the timing, but most places are likely to experience light freezing rain by mid morning Sunday. A glaze of ice will form into early Sunday afternoon before some areas see a changeover to plain rain when temperatures warm above freezing. We do not anticipate a significant amount of ice on Sunday, but it will be enough to impact travel throughout the day.
A look ahead to next week shows plenty of cold air. We stay below average early in the week with more seasonable conditions by late week.
