Up to 2 inches of snow is likely for much of the area through Monday morning.

 

 

 

 

Additional snowfall amounts Monday afternoon through early Tuesday morning range from 2 to 5 inches for most. Some spots to the far north and northwest could see more than 5 inches.

SNOW TO ICY MIX: A complex system brings snow to the area through  Monday morning, and then a snow to icy mix through the night. Light snow is expected to continue until about late morning for most of the region. Temperatures are starting in the upper 20s. Then, a break moves in for most late morning until about midday. This is roughly from 9 A.M. to 12 P.M. Locations near the Mason-Dixon Line may not see much of a break. Snow showers and even some rain showers are likely through the rest of the afternoon. Temperatures only reach the lower 30s. The readings

turn cold again through the evening as light snow fills back into Central PA. This is as a second wave, and the main event moves into the region. Temperatures fall below freezing and stay there through the night. Snow accumulations occur at first, then expect a transition to sleet and freezing rain to begin around midnight in our southern counties. This transition slowly shifts north through Monday night. By rougly midnight, many spots see sleet and freezing rain mix in, and it slowly transitions to rain through the early afternoon on Tuesday from north to south as temperatures gradually rise above freezing. Rain showers won’t end until late Tuesday night.

 

 

QUIETER MIDWEEK: Conditions turn a bit milder through the middle of the week, but most importantly, it will be quieter. Wednesday is breezy with partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures reach the middle to upper 30s. The moderation in temperatures continues into Thursday. Readings reach the lower to middle 40s with plenty of sunshine. Clouds increase late ahead of the next system. It’s a mild one for Friday, so there’s no concern for wintry precipitation types as this next system crosses through Central PA. This is all rain shower activity. Temperatures reach the middle 40s to near 50 degrees.

 

 

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Temperatures start to come down through the weekend, but most of the time is dry. A few showers could linger into the early morning on Saturday, then skies are partly sunny through the rest of the day. Temperatures are in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Sunday is a bit chillier with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures reach the lower to middle 30s.
