Frigid mornings, and snow for Thursday

FRIGID AIR CONTINUES:  After a chilled Monday, the colder dome of high pressure settles in over top of us today.  We start in the single digits and end in the low to middle 20s today.  Sun will fill the sky with a few clouds, but it’s cold.  Tonight, we’ll make a run at 0° which may break a record of 0° set in 1979.  Brrr!  Wednesday starts frigid and ends cold in the middle 20s.  Sun gives way to clouds late.  Then, our next system moves into the state.

LOWS

Model projected lows calling for a frigid, near record night!

THURSDAY SNOW:  After another day of model runs, the forecast is looking likely for some modest accumulations from the next snow storm, but we’re waiting until tonight to issue snow totals because there are still very large variances between models for totals.

WTE

What we know now is that snow begins overnight Wednesday and lasting through the day Thursday.  Snow will be moderate to heavy at times, with the greatest potential for significant accumulations east of the I-81 corridor and along the PA/MD border.  Expect a snow day Thursday.  A Winter Storm Watch goes into effect late Wednesday night, lasting into Thursday morning for Adams, Lancaster, and York Counties.  Temperatures will rise to the low to mid 30s under otherwise cloudy skies.

We’ll give our crack at snow totals this afternoon with MaryEllen Pann.

SNOWTOTALS

It looks like the storm will hug the coast, but sit a little farther east than yesterday’s thoughts. Heaviest snow amounts would then fall along and east of the I-81 corridor.

PROBS

MOST, not all, of the area will likely see at least 4″ of snow. With eastern areas seeing a shot at 12″ of snow.

INTO THE WEEKEND:  Valentine’s Day will feature temperatures in the upper 30s with mostly cloudy skies.  A quick clipper brings light snow into the overnight.  We’re looking at partly cloudy skies temps near 30° though the weekend.  A clipper brings snow early Sunday too.  Stay warm, stay shoveled, and look forward to spring!

Make it a terrific Tuesday!
