High pressure in control, clear skies, lighter winds and a new healthy snow pack on the ground will lead to lows in the lower single digits.  The official record at Harrisburg International is 3 degrees.  The forecast is 4 so we’ll be close.  Some isolated areas may dip briefly below zero.

DMA Lows Tomorrow


Saturday will be cold with morning lows starting near record lows in the single digits.  We’ll rebound to the mid and upper 20s under abundant sunshine.  The next storm system comes in Sunday. With temperatures starting in the teens and precipitation possible as early morning, it could start out as a wintry mix before changing to all rain as temperatures slowly climb above freezing.  As the next arctic boundary heads in Sunday night, precipitation should change to all snow.  Highs Sunday will reach the mid 30s. Temperatures for Monday will be warmest just after midnight in the lower 30s, then fall rapidly through the day to the lower 20s.  Strong blustery winds will make temperatures feel much, much colder.

3 Day


Monday morning mix to snow will be possible as storm pulls away.  Temperatures will plummet as another Arctic blast settles in across the area.  Winds will once again gust bringing back arctic air causing temperatures to plummet through the day.  Tuesday morning we could see record breaking lows below zero but with the winds, we’ll be dealing with dangerous numbers in the negative teens.  Highs will only make to near 10 degrees above zero.  It will be another cold start Wednesday in the lower single digits but highs should rebound to near 20.  We head towards 30 for Thursday but our next system is taking shape and looks to bring light snow to the area.


Have a nice weekend and stay warm!
