After a soggy day across the Lower Susquehanna River Valley, skies continue to dry out into the early evening hours. Variable cloudiness sticks around too through the overnight. Temperatures don’t drop too much, and hover a little below and a little above the freezing mark. There could be a few icy patches early in the morning. Clouds briefly increase Monday morning as a cold front slides through. Once it passes, the clouds decrease and a shot of colder air begins to work in. Highs are contained to the middle to upper 30s.
ARCTIC BLAST BEGINS THE NEW YEAR
The cold air mass settles in as we say goodbye to 2013 and welcome 2014. Be ready to bundle up for New Year’s Eve and Day plans! Tuesday a few flurries are possible, mainly to the northwestern parts of the area, with highs in the upper 20s to near 30 degrees. A few flurries are possible again on New Year’s Day to the north, with highs in the 20s. Models are still indicating system from the west could bring light to moderate snow on Thursday, depending on how much it intensifies and where it tracks. We’ll keep an eye on this as the situation continues to develop.
ICEBOX STICKS AROUND
Behind Thursday’s potential weather maker, some of the coldest air so far this season plunges into the Lower Susquehanna River Valley. Highs could be stuck in the upper teens to lower 20s with limited sunshine on Friday. Saturday morning could be a brutally cold start with low temperatures falling into the single digits for some! Highs rebound a little during the under some added sunshine, but are still well below seasonal average in the upper 20s. Sunday the moderating trend continues as a southwesterly flow kicks in. Highs reach the middle to upper 30s. Clouds build ahead of our next weather maker.
Have a great week!
