WEATHER WARN | Winter Storm Warning expanded in Central Pa.
**WINTER STORM WARNING** 3 TO 6" OF SNOW AND SLEET BEFORE GOING OVER TO ICY MIX THEN RAIN DURING THE DAY TUESDAY
Winter Storm Warning is in effect until Tuesday late afternoon/early evening for the following counties:
Periods of snow will persist throughout the night as a complex storm moves north and east. Snow will be heavy at times along with mixing with sleet at times. Main roads have been heavily treat, but some could become snow covered during heavier bursts of snow ... especially across higher elevations. Do expect side streets to be snow covered during the overnight and into the morning rush.
- Overnight: Snow ... Heavy at Times, Mixing with Sleet – Low 30
- Tuesday: Snow, Changing to Sleet and Freezing Rain, Mostly All Rain Come Late Afternoon – High 36
- Wednesday: Partly Sunny, Breezy – High 36
We can expect a prolonged period of accumulating snow followed by a wintry mix, then rain. A general 3 to 6" is likely with locally larger amounts north and west of the Harrisburg metro and across higher elevations. Then warmer air gradually moves in Tuesday morning turning the snow to sleet...then freezing rain and wrapping up Tuesday as rain. A sloppy Tuesday is expected with another round of school delays/closings and slick roads. Plan accordingly! With the complexity of Tuesday's storm we have declared it CBS 21 *Weather Warn Day* until further notice.
Following this storm another complex area of disturbed weather heads east come the end of the week. Currently the setup is trending warmer which means mainly a rain event on Friday, but there is a possibility for a wintry mix come Saturday. All-in-all a busy pattern ahead!
