Winter Storm Forecast for South Central Pennsylvania
Storm Team forecast with meteorologist Marilyn Pan. Well, despite the clouds we had yesterday, temperatures reached the high 50s and low 60s and we were still dealing with overcast skies today. The weather will not be as mild, however, as temperatures will still be above seasonal norms. We are tracking the upcoming storm system, and expect an impact day on Tuesday. Precipitation will begin Monday night, then move in and mix with sleet and snow, continuing through the midday hours of Tuesday. I will have more on this in the future. But what you will notice this week is that temperatures will get colder. In fact, we will drop below average as we head into the work week. Your Storm Team’s 8 forecasts predict mainly cloudy skies today. Temperatures in the 40s start out very mild this morning. We will only get to about 50 degrees this afternoon. We will have some cloud breaks towards evening temperatures back into the low to mid 40s overnight. Tonight is mostly cloudy, noticeably cooler. We’re in the 30s again. Mid 30s across the region. Then tomorrow will be mostly cloudy with rain continuing late in the day and into the evening hours. Most of the day will be dry with cooler temperatures in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. Look outside right now. We have York Skycam. We have some cloud cover there. The sun rises a little after 7:00 this morning and temperatures range widely, but are very mild for this time of the morning. And the 49th in Lebanon, the 47th in Carlisle, we have less than 50 in Chambersburg and Gettysburg. But Lewistown is at 39 degrees and Selinsgrove is at 40 degrees, cold off the coast. But there’s a wave of low pressure developing along that front and moving along, bringing some rain just to our south. I have the possibility of a sprinkle along the Maryland state line, just because the humidity is so close, but it’s experiencing some dry air, so the threat is very, very low. So most of the day is just cloud cover hanging over our storm system that we’re seeing here moving up. It will move from the southwest. This is the system that will bring us a mix of rain and snow, especially as we reach the overnight period from Monday into Tuesday morning. So let’s take a look at the prediction tool. So, as we go through the day, we might catch a passing splash or shower. But other than that we’re looking at cloud cover breaking up a bit tonight. But then it gets thicker as tomorrow goes on. This particular pattern has those rains here by the evening hours, adding to their intensity. You see the cold air wrap around you. This 2 a.m., we’re starting to see some snow showers in the northwest counties here. Mifflin and Juniata Counties are still raining. Then it continues to move into frost. And then the snow falls before it starts to come out. Now this particular model moves that moisture out very quickly. So a lot of the other models and high-rise models that I’m looking at keep the rain and the rain and the snow going until the afternoon hours. But a large part of the moisture will be lifted from here. After that, the wind will increase and you will feel very active as the day goes on. Tuesday. Now, the National Weather Service issued a winter storm watch yesterday, and that will be in effect Monday evening into Tuesday morning. It includes our northern counties, but I will tell you that the morning flight times have changed. Heaviest Snow Our highest snow amounts move northward. So I don’t think this watch will remain in effect for us much longer. As you can see here in the snowfall forecast tool, pink indicates where moderate snow will fall. We will see some light accumulations to the north and west. Then to the south and east where we see more mixing. Obviously we will see a lot less snow. So, what you can expect is rain Monday night. The weather will be mild during the day but cooler at night. It will move into a period of snow by Tuesday morning with more mixing in the south and less in the north. The snow ends at midday. The snow and rain will end around midday, and there may be some possible snow in our northwest counties, and possibly northern counties. The 10-day forecast shows Valentine’s Day looking good. Just breezy and a little cool. Temperatures are near 40 degrees but feel like the 30s. Small scissors come through. Thursday night could bring us some snow showers and some light stuff. Temperatures, although trending cooler, are only in the upper 30s for Saturday and Sunday over the weekend. We are tracking
