Mike Linden's Forecast | Scattered snow showers last through the work week
With a busy weekend in NEPA on the way it seems Mother Nature will provide us with a much needed (but not warm) break.
The rest of the work week will likely feature scattered snow showers. Western Pennsylvania may see some decent accumulation but most of the central and NEPA won't see all that much over the next 24 hours. The mountains may see light accumulation with the lower valleys around a coating into the weekend.
Daytime highs will struggle on Friday too, falling short of normal into the mid to high 30s under near overcast skies for most of the day.
The Scranton St. Patrick's Day parade is this Saturday and if you plan on going be sure to wear a warm coat as daytime highs once again settle into the mid to high 30s. The luck of the Irish may be with us too as the weather conditions remain quiet through both Saturday and Sunday (the day of the Wilkes-Barre parade).
There's still a chance for another round of winter weather early next week as some model outputs are trying to spit out another Nor'easter. I still have my doubts but it's an interesting development, to say the least. It's still too early to commit to a full-fledged storm but it's something to monitor (closely) going into Friday and the weekend.
11 days to go until Spring!
