Weather Watch throughout weekend, 1-5" of snow expected across Central PA
SNOW ADVISORY FOR LIGHT WEEKEND SNOW:
Today: Mostly Cloudy, Light Snow Develops After 3pm – High 30
Snow accumulates this evening into tomorrow morning 2-3 inches total
Sunday: Light Snow Early, then Mostly Cloudy – High 34
Monday: Mostly Sunny - High 36
HERE WE SNOW:
Get ready for a little taste of Winter for the 2nd half of today into tomorrow that will bring some light snow. As a result, today and Sunday are CBS 21 Weather Watch Days as we keep you out ahead of this wintry weather.
Expect light snow to begin today after 3 pm and continue into Sunday morning. At this point we can expect about 2-3" of snow in and around the Harrisburg region.
Some areas north of Harrisburg may struggle to pick up more than a coating to an inch. Meanwhile southern Franklin, Adams and York Counties will see 3 to 5" near the State line.
While not a big storm, this light powdery snow will be enough to make for slick travel both tonight and early tomorrow, so plan your weekend accordingly!
The set up from this storm does not favor big snow as it is advancing in from the Southwest, that's why we will see the higher end of our snow totals coming along the PA/MD line. Our big snow storms are usually set up to our East and along the Atlantic Coast... commonly known as "Nor'Easters".
Highs both today and tomorrow will be right around the freezing mark, so some slick conditions on secondary and rural roads may linger into Monday morning. Then we will see a slight warm up by Tuesday and Wednesday with highs both days near 40.
