Mike Linden's Forecast | Another round of snow showers arrive overnight
It has been a trying week for winter conditions in NEPA but Mother Nature rolls on with the hits heading into the 2nd half of the work week. Don't forget, Winter doesn't officially start until the 21st.
The coldest air of the season arrived overnight and into Wednesday with most hitting the mid to high 20s, but don't be deceived by your thermometer. With the addition of breezy winds from the west the mid 20s feels more like the single digits. This feel will remain in place through the rest of the work week so keep the hat, gloves and warm layers on standby!
We've discussed all week how NEPA is still looking at around an inch of snow before Thursday morning and we seem likely to find it tonight and into Thursday. A clipper system will sweep across PA this evening and drop a 1-2" of snow for most as NEPA is under a Winter Weather Advisory until Thursday at 10:00 morning. While an advisory doesn't mean huge snow totals and whiteout conditions, it's still a good reminder to be safe on the roads and to prepare for light snow. A boost from the Great Lakes may even push these totals closer to 3-4" for some too.
Looking ahead, temperatures will recover into the weekend reaching the upper 30s by Sunday into Monday. These won't last long (unfortunately) as another cold front ushers in the possibility for not only snow showers but another dip down into the 20s. Keep those layers ready to go!
