DRY START TO WEEK: After a morning mix end on Monday, expect sunshine to break out for the afternoon. The rain, sleet, snow mix comes to an end by daybreak, leaving little to nothing by way of accumulations. Sun slowly peeks out through the morning. It’s a cold start, with readings in the lower to middle 30s. The afternoon features more by way of sunshine. It’s a touch breezy, with afternoon high temperatures in the middle to upper 40s. Late tonight, clouds build ahead of the next system. Temperatures fall into the lower to middle 30s.
NEXT SYSTEM: The next system arrives Tuesday. A brief mix could sneak in depending on the timing of the system. This means some light snow, sleet, and/or freezing rain is possible briefly, mainly for the higher elevations to the far northwest of Harrisburg. Most however, are expected to see rain from the start. The region ultimately sees rain showers during much of the afternoon, evening, and the overnight period. Skies are dry by daybreak Wednesday. Temperatures Tuesday reach the lower to middle 40s, and then reach the upper 40s to lower 50s on Wednesday. After plenty of sunshine peeks through Wednesday, clouds quickly return later during the day.
COLD BURST: Chillier December air is expected to move in for the end of the week and the weekend. On Thursday, the chance for a few rain and snow showers returns with a fast moving system. Expect plenty of clouds, with temperatures in the upper 30s to lower 40s. A cold burst of air settles into the area in the wake of the system. This leads to a cold start to the weekend. Temperatures are in the lower to middle 30s both Friday and Saturday. It’s breezy and cloudy with a few flurries Friday. Plenty of clouds continue through Saturday. Our next system could bring some snow showers Saturday night and into Sunday. Temperatures Sunday are closer to 40 degrees.
Have a great Monday!
