Colder and breezy Friday, snow and sleet for Saturday

Forecast

Cold air sets the stage for some wintry weather on Saturday...

EVENING: Very Windy, Stray Snow Shower. Hi 45. Winds: NW 20-30 mph. Gusts to 50 mph.

TONIGHT: Blustery & Cold. Lo 22. Winds: NW 10-20 mph. Gusts to 40 mph.

FRIDAY: Cold & Breezy. Hi 32. Winds: N 10-20 mph.

Winds are weakening, but expect speeds overnight to sustain 10-20mph with gusts up to 30mph. Temperatures drop into the 20s by Friday morning. Friday features lots of sun, but we stay cold and breezy with highs reaching 32 degrees.

Clouds increase Friday night ahead of the approaching winter mix. Snow should begin to fall shortly after sunrise with most places receiving snow by mid morning. Our best time for snow accumulation will occur from mid morning into the early afternoon. The snow will eventually changeover to sleet for most areas, and possibly freezing rain across our southern tier counties (Franklin, Adams, York, Lancaster).

Snow amounts may reach 2 to 4 inches north of Harrisburg before changing to sleet. South and east of I-81 will likely see a gritty mix of snow and sleet that could add up to 2 inches. Travel will be slow midday Saturday before the storm begins to exit Saturday evening.

Sunday will be colder and blustery and we stay cold through early next week. Afternoon high temperatures will stay in the 20s for Monday and Tuesday!
