The week of Thanksgiving is here but the up-and-down, wet-and-dry pattern continues in NEPA. We began the (shortened) work week with lake effect snow showers seeping into Pennsylvania bringing less than a inch in most spots. We we saw didn't stick around for very long as temperatures warmed into the mid 30s early this morning. Regardless, winter is coming (whether you like it or not).
We're likely all done with active weather for )(at least) the next 24 hours as a surge of mild air arrives from the southwest. This will push daytime highs for Tuesday into the low 50s under mostly sunny skies. I wish this could be the forecast for the rest of the week but our wacky November stops for no one.
If you're travelling Wednesday night, keep an eye on the FOX 56 radar app (available in the App Store and the Google Play store) as we'll once again run a chance for some passing snow flurries. This won't be the same lake effect setup we saw overnight but we may still see some (light) accumulation.
Thanksgiving looks great (for now)! Temperatures will likely fall short of normal in the low 40s but the chance for active weather is minimal. Overall, the holiday looks nice but will FEEL cold. If you're heading out after dinner to get some holiday shopping done bring a (warm) jacket as temperatures slide into the upper 20s.
By Sunday of next week the chance for snow returns again as daytime highs slide into the mid to high 30s. Ned Stark wasn't lying...winter is coming.
