COOLER END TO THE WEEK
Cold front has settled along the east coast. Showers continue to stream towards the northeast to our east. An area of low pressure will develop along the front and pull up more moisture, some of which may track over the south and east. York and Lancaster Counties on eastward may see light snow fall overnight between the hours of midnight and 4am. Mainly the far southern and far eastern points have a chance of seeing a dusting or light coating. Most of the area will just see clouds and dry conditions for the overnight. Lows will drop the upper 20s to low 30s. High pressure building in from the southwest will help to push the system away from the coast. It will also clear the clouds leaving us with a day full of sunshine. Highs will be cooler in the low 40s.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK
It will be a great weekend to enjoy outdoors running around. The ground will still be wet and muddy with the continuation of melting snow. Plenty of sunshine to start the weekend, however, clouds will build in later in the day. Highs will warm to the low to mid 40s. We continue with above average temperatures and sunshine for the second half of the weekend. Low pressure passes by to our north dragging a weak cold front through. We may see added cloud cover for Sunday but nothing more. Highs will still warm into the mid 40s.

TRENDING COLDER WITH SNOW CHANCES
Colder air spills in next week, as a broad trough moves eastward and makes home for a few days. Several short wave disturbances rotate through and one looks to merge with an area of low pressure for Monday night into Tuesday morning. There could be a period of a wintry mix Monday evening, which will turn to all snow overnight. We could pick up a few inches of snow by early Tuesday. With several more disturbance coming in from the northwest, the colder air will be persistent and flurries will be possible both Wednesday and Thursday. Highs will be held in the 30s.
