It was another ‘blah’ January day with extensive cloud cover and a pretty gusty northwesterly breeze. We’ll stay breezy overnight as temperatures slowly drop into the lower 30s. Saturday looks like a decent day with mixed clouds and sunshine and highs in the low 40s. Clouds roll back in Sunday morning ahead of the next system.

Recent trends have been for a slightly warmer solution. Snow showers will move in Sunday afternoon but areas south of the turnpike, it’s possible it stays mainly rain throughout the event. Snow will linger longest north and west of Harrisburg where up to 2″ of snow could fall through late Sunday night. Elsewhere, roads will be mainly wet as temperatures stay well above freezing. This system exits Monday morning with mostly cloudy and breezy conditions for the afternoon.

There’s another system showing up for Wednesday. This one could have a little more cold air to work with which means we start out as a period of steady snow Wednesday morning. We should switch over to all rain by mid-day though as warmer air floods north again. Behind the storm, temperatures hang out near seasonable averages toward the end of next week with a cold front swinging through Friday. Winter is starting to finally wake up, but no significant snow on the horizon yet!
