Wintry weather potential for Wednesday holiday travel

After near-record high temperatures Monday, wintry weather is on the horizon for the middle of the week. The biggest travel day of the year (Wednesday) will likely feature a coastal storm that will bring some snow to our region. Cold air will be hard to come by with this storm and it is likely temperatures will be just barely cold enough for snow mixed with rain during the day on Wednesday. By evening when the sun goes down, that snow may stick better and that would be our best chance to see accumulating snowfall here in Central PA. Regardless of how much snow we see, even a rainy day would bring problems on such a busy travel day. With potential snowfall in the forecast those with travel plans should be prepared to adjust schedules if and when the time comes.

At this point it appears snow will develop around midday Wednesday, and last into the overnight hours. There may even be some mixing with rain depending on the track of the storm. Those details will be figured out once the storm actually takes shape early in the week down south. The good news is that the storm will be gone by Thanksgiving morning for those traveling on the actual holiday.

Expect colder conditions for the rest of the holiday weekend with highs in the 30s and dry conditions.
