The pesky snow showers and snow squalls that have been causing havoc on the highways will finally taper off tonight. But, not for long. More snow is on the way for Sunday.
A storm system will track east towards Pennsylvania on Sunday bringing light snow. Expect it to start in Central PA during the morning hours and spread into Northeast PA during the afternoon. The snow will be mainly light during the day, accumulating a coating to an inch or two by dark.
Periods of light snow will continue Sunday evening, with a burst of some steadier snow expected after midnight. The snow overnight may mix with sleet and even some rain from the valley cities south. All of the precipitation is expected to end around daybreak Monday. Total accumulations are expected to be 1-3″ for most of the area, except 3-5″ in the mountains of the Northern Tier and a few spots in the northern Poconos.
Things dry out and warm up a bit during the day Monday with seasonably chilly weather moving in for Tuesday and Wednesday. An arctic blast is expected to arrive for Thursday and Friday, with bitter cold, gusty winds and more snow showers and squalls.
Another storm is slated to arrive next Saturday. Temperatures will be rising ahead of it, so this storm also looks like it will feature a mix of snow, ice and rain.
