Huge changes occurring today compared to yesterday. Temperatures during the afternoon will be 30 to 40 degrees colder than yesterday. Winds will be in the 25-35 mph range, gusting at times over 40mph through the morning hours. With temperatures dropping, anything that was wet yesterday will freeze over today. Snow showers and blowing snow could quickly coat roadways causing slick travel with poor visibility at times (especially in higher, open areas), so use caution. We could see a coating of snow east of I-99, with as much as a few inches through the day in the Laurels and the northern zones.
Tonight we will have snow showers and it will remain windy. Again, be careful of quickly deteriorating conditions in higher, open areas. There will be light accumulations in the valleys, and possibly another couple of inches in the northern areas and the Laurels.
Tomorrow will remain windy with sustained winds of 15-25 mph. We will have variably cloudy skies and some snow showers and flurries. Total accumulations through tomorrow in the areas east of I-99 will be in the 1-3 inch range. The Laurels and Northern counties including Jefferson, Elk and Clearfield could see total accumulations as high as 4-6 inches under some of those snow bands. High temperatures will only be in the upper teens to low 20s.
Saturday will be cold with some early sun giving way to increasing cloudiness with some light snow moving in during the afternoon through the overnight and into the first part of Sunday. Saturday temps will be in the mid 20s, and Sunday will top out in the upper 20s to near 30.
