Tracking rain and snow

We're tracking spotty light snow for after midnight.

SATURDAY NIGHT SNOW: We’ll spend most of our Saturday dry.  Then, later this evening, spotty showers will cross over us.  These hit or miss showers will begin around dinnertime.  They’ll continue through 9 P.M.  From 9 P.M. through 1 A.M. the showers will switch over to sleet and then snow.  This will happen first in the northern parts of our area like Mifflin, Juniata, Dauphin, and Lebanon Counties first.  Then, the changeover spreads south.  The spotty light snow will end between 4 and 7 A.M.  If you get the snow, expect a coating or up to an inch.

SUNNIER SUNDAY: After morning clouds, the sun returns Sunday afternoon.  Highs reach the mid 40s.

MORE SHOWERS: Yet, cloudy skies come back for Monday, and a few showers come back in the afternoon, too.  Highs climb to near 50.  Then, we’ll stay near 50 on Tuesday, but the sunny skies return.

We’ll need the umbrella a few times on Saturday and Monday.

COLD AGAIN: Even though we are sunny on Wednesday, we will feel the chill with highs in the low 40s.  The skies stay sunny on Thursday, and highs in the 40s continue.

We’ll need all the winter gear a few times over the next few days.

MORE RAIN: 50s finally come back on Friday, and they stay for Saturday of next week.  The price to pay?  Some rain.  Expect a few showers on Friday; most of us stay dry throughout the day.  On Saturday of next week, we spend the morning dry; then, we’ll see widespread scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.

50s come back next week.
