Snow showers take a brief break, then return Monday afternoon

Light snow showers and flurries across portions of central Pennsylvania will diminish through the overnight period, with some clearing taking place late.  Temperatures will be slow to fall the first half of the night, but with the anticipated clearing, readings will drop into the upper teens and lower 20s late.

 

MORE OF THE SAME THROUGH MIDWEEK

We stay stuck in the same cold pattern, accompanied by weak disturbances that will keep light snow showers in the forecast.  After a sunny start Monday, clouds quickly build through the day as yet another of these weak pieces of energy approaches.  A few afternoon snow showers are possible, but the brunt of the snow shower activity will hold off until the evening.  Highs Monday will struggle to reach 30 degrees, with many locations staying in the 20s.  Light snow showers will continue through the overnight, with a few lingering showers very early Tuesday morning.  Up to an inch of snowfall is expected.  Tuesday will be mainly dry and cold, with highs in the lower 30s.  Another disturbance scoots through overnight Tuesday, making snow showers likely once again.  A snow shower could linger into the early morning on Wednesday, otherwise it will be a dry day with highs in the middle to upper 30s.

 

END OF WEEK

Temperatures return to seasonable averages, and even a little bit higher to end the week.  Thursday, clouds increase as our next weather maker heads this way.  Highs will be near 40 degrees.  Friday brings the chance for some rain and/or snow showers, mainly during the morning, with highs near the 40 degree mark yet again.

 

MILD WEEKEND

Above average temperatures settle in for the weekend along with plenty of sunshine.  Highs will be in the lower 40s on Saturday, and then rise into the middle 40s by Sunday.  Perhaps this is a sign of the early spring Punxsutawney Phil called for on Saturday!

 

Have a great week!
