Reported by Meteorologist Nate Wardle:
--- UPDATED - Sunday 5 p.m. ---
Welcome to February.
The month started off on a warm note, with temperatures surging into the 40s on Saturday. They will return to the 40s for Super Groundhog Day, the first day the Super Bowl and Groundhog Day are the same day.
But don't get to used to the warm temperatures. A system coming up from the southwest will head toward our area for early Monday morning.
At this point, we think the snow begins in Franklin, Adams and York Counties around midnight or 1 a.m., spreading into all of our counties by 3 a.m.
The snow will be heavy at times right through the morning commute and into the late morning. It will quickly move out of the area, and we might even see some sun late in the day in some locations Monday.
As for amounts for the storm, they are certainly on the high side for such a quick moving storm. Our storm forecast map shows many locations in the 5-8 inch rain, with lower locations north of I-81. Places south and east of Lancaster may have issues with the precip starting as rain before changing over, but otherwise this is an all snow event.
Tuesday during the day is a brief respite from the wintry weather before another, more potent system heads our way for Tuesday night and Wednesday.
This storm will start as all snow, but is expected to change over to sleet, possibly some freezing rain and then plain rain on Wednesday. A very messy forecast for Wednesday. The exact details for this will not be known until after this first storm passes us on Monday.
Then another storm, which may be the strongest of the three, is poised for next weekend.
All of this adds up to a very active start to the month of February, and you will want to stay tuned to CBS 21 on-air, online and on social media for all the latest details.
