December 12 2017
The system on the move this morning brought wintry weather as close as Harrisburg PA, but the warm air did hang on for us. Do not be deceived but the mild start to the day as we aim for the mid 40s. Temperatures will tank this afternoon and you will feel it on your way home for sure. Hanukkah begins this evening and it will feel like that holiday season over the next week. The active changes continue as the bottom falls out on the thermometer with wind chills near Zero, then a chance of light snow tomorrow night and again on Friday evening.

This morning a pre-frontal trough will develop a ling of rain showers along and east of I-95. This will be rain!
We will see the cold air arrive between 3 and 5 PM. Some flurries may mark the cold air, but it is all about the drop in temperatures.
The wind chills will be the main story. Air temperatures will be in the teens, but the wind chill will be near Zero!
At this point we have two systems that may bring us light snow. Just enough to maybe coat the ground and lead to some road issues into Thursday morning.
brings a system nearby off of the coast. This is worth watching for another round of light snow.
Temperatures will be frigid for a few days, but recover over the weekend. Next week will be milder, then fall again around Christmas.
