Winter is coming! 1-5 inches of weekend snow expected throughout Central PA
Under mostly sunny skies, the winds do ease a bit today but it remains a few degrees below average with highs in the mid to low 30's.
Get ready for a little taste of Winter for the 2nd half of Saturday into Sunday that will bring some light snow. As a result, Saturday and Sunday are CBS 21 Weather Watch Days as we keep you out ahead of this wintry weather.
Expect light snow to begin Saturday after 3pm and continue into Sunday morning. At this point we can expect about 1-3" 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 Saturday night and early Sunday 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 Saturday and Sunday 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.
Today: Mostly Sunny, Breezy – High 34
Tonight: Clear Skies – Low 22
Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Light Snow Develops After 3pm – High 32
Sunday: Light Snow Early, then Mostly Cloudy – High 32
