Light snow showers begin to exit the area late Thursday morning.

A weak piece of energy passing near the Lower Susquehanna Valley is bringing some snow showers across the region this morning.  The snow showers are light in nature, and only a half of an inch to an inch of snowfall is expected at best where the heavier bouts of snow align.  There will be some slick roads and snow to brush off vehicles, but that will be the extent of it.  The snow showers move out during the afternoon, leading way to clearing skies.  Afternoon highs reach the middle to upper 30s with some westerly breezes.  Overnight the clouds briefly return late, otherwise it’s a quiet night.  Lows are in the lower to middle 20s.

 

 

SUNNY WITH WARMING

High pressure moving into the region increases sunshine for Friday.  With abundant sunshine, temperatures reach the middle to upper 30s once again.  As a more southerly flow develops this weekend, temperatures warm into the middle 40s Saturday under plenty of sunshine.

 

 

RAIN FOLLOWED BY ARCTIC BLAST

The nice stretch of weather comes to an end Sunday as another storm system develops into Sunday.  Clouds quickly thicken up Sunday morning.  It moves up the coast, bringing rain showers to the area Sunday afternoon and overnight.  The system exits by Monday, bringing a return to the sunshine, but a cold shot of air moves in as we say goodbye to 2013 and welcome 2014.  Highs fall back at and below freezing.  Be ready to bundle up for New Years Eve and Day plans!

 

 

Have a great Thursday!

    Just wondering what planet you all live on. There is at least 4inches of snow outside and accidents are all over the place because salt trucks and plows are not out taking care of the roads. Maybe it is time to change your weather service.
