Gusty winds keep wind chills in the teens, before some light snow
HARRISBURG, Pa. —
Today’s Weather Story: Gusty winds will keep our wind chills in the teens this afternoon, before some light snow develops tonight.
Next Weather Maker: An Alberta “Clipper” system will move in tonight around 8pm. It will approach from the Northwest, so places like Western Perry, Mifflin and Juniata Counties will be the first to see some flakes before light snow overspreads the region. We can expect to pick up a Coating to 2” of powdery light snow before everything wraps up by sunrise tomorrow morning. Look for the higher amounts to fall to the Northwest of Harrisburg with areas along the Mason/Dixon line only seeing a coating. Keep in mind that temperatures overnight will be in the teens in some spots, so any snow we see will stick to road surfaces causing hazardous travel conditions tonight and early tomorrow morning. High temperatures tomorrow will only reach 32°, so any untreated surfaces will remain slick throughout the day on Thursday!
Weekend Outlook: After a few leftover flurries on Friday, temperatures will gradually warm over the weekend. Expect seasonable highs in the low-40’s by Sunday with a few late day flurries. Overall it will be a pretty good weekend for getting Holiday errands taken care of.
We do see another shot of cold air by the middle of next week, and this cold and active pattern is likely to last through the Holiday season!
Today: Partly Sunny, Windy and Cold – High 30
Tonight: Light Snow, Coating to 2” of Accumulation – Low 20
Tomorrow: Early Snow Showers, Partly Cloudy – High 32
Friday: Partly Sunny, Flurries – High 32
