Winter Weather, Nicole Santangelo, PSU
After an exceptional lake-effect snow event in Erie, PA and some bitterly cold weather across Pennsylvania, there will be little reprieve from the chill through the next seven to ten days.
While Wednesday afternoon will be slightly warmer than the previous few days with highs in the upper teens to mid-20s, a cold front will swing through Pennsylvania on Thursday. A storm along the coast may clip far eastern Pennsylvania with some light snow on Thursday, though it could remain far enough off the coast to be of little consequence in the state. The front, however, will bring more lake-effect snow showers to northern/western Pennsylvania through the weekend and some bitterly cold temperatures. Low temperatures will likely drop below 0 degrees F across the northern parts of PA and some deeper valleys on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. The remainder of the state will be in the single digits. A storm will be approaching the state by early next week which could bring wintry precipitation to the region in the Monday through Wednesday time frame. Longer range models are indicating that the cold will likely remain through at least the middle of January.
