Snow, rain expected Wednesday in South-Central Pennsylvania



SO PRETTY BREEZY THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. TODAY ARE NEWS 8 STORM TEAM FORECAST AS WE START OUT IN THE MID THIRTIES BY 9:00, BREEZE OUT THERE WILL MAKE IT FEEL LIKE A TWENTIES IN SOME SPOTS FOR THE AFTERNOON, PARTLY SUNNY. STILL, THE WINDS ARE BRISK AT 44 DEGREES. THEN THE WINDS DIMINISH THIS EVENING. TONIGHT, ANY BREAKS IN THE CLOUDS WILL FILL IN AS OUR NEXT WEATHER SYSTEM ROLLS INTO THE MIDWEST. 28 TO 32 FOR THE OVERNIGHT LOWS TOMORROW MORNING. SNOW WILL BE DEVELOPING BY LATE MORNING IN MOST SPOTS. THEN WE CHANGE OVER INTO RAIN BY AFTERNOON. SO I’D SAY LATE MORNING TRAVEL COULD BE A LITTLE DICEY. BUT BY THE TIME WE HIT THE EVENING COMMUTE TOMORROW, IT LOOKS JUST WET OUT THERE WITH RAIN SHOWERS AREA WIDE. SO A COATING TO ABOUT FOUR INCHES SHOULD COVER MOST OF OUR VIEWING AREA FOR OUR TOTALS. AND I’LL SHOW YOU THAT MAP COMING UP. TOMORROW’S HIGHS GET INTO THE UPPER THIRTIES LATER IN THE DAY. DIGGING A LIVE LOOK IN GETTYSBURG. NO WET STREETS THIS MORNING. IT’S 36 DEGREES. 36 IN LEBANON, 34 FOR LANCASTER, 34 CURRENTLY IN CARLISLE. WIND SPEEDS THAT PRETTY BURST OUT THERE. WINDS ABOUT 5 TO 15. NOW, REMEMBER, THEY’LL BE 10 TO 20 MILES PER HOUR AGAIN THIS AFTERNOON. CHECKING OUT SUPER DOPPLER 8 ALL THIS QUIET LOCALLY, BUT WE HAVE THE STORM SYSTEM WE’VE BEEN TRACKING OVER THE PANHANDLE OF TEXAS THIS MORNING. AND THIS INCLUDES SNOW AND RAIN. ALL OF THAT WEATHER WILL BE MOVING OUR WAY BY TWO MORROW. SO LET’S PIN THINGS DOWN TODAY. UNEVENTFUL. A LITTLE BREEZY OUT THERE, MIX OF CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE. PRETTY DECENT DAY FOR JANUARY WITH HIGHS IN THE LOW FORTIES AS WE HEAD INTO TONIGHT. CLOUDS THICKEN AND I THINK THERE’LL BE A BAND OF SNOW THAT DEVELOPS TOMORROW MORNING, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE IT MISSES MOST OF THE AREA. SO YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO SQUEEZE IN THE MORNING RUSH AND JUST FIND TOMORROW BEFORE LATE MORNING ARRIVES AND THEN THAT SNOW STARTS TO FILL IN. SO BY TEN, MAYBE EVEN 11:00 IN OUR EASTERN MOST COUNTIES, THAT’S WHEN THE SNOW WILL BE ARRIVING AND IT CHANGES OVER TO RAIN RIGHT AFTER LUNCHTIME. SO THERE’S JUST A SMALL OPPORTUNITY, A SMALL WINDOW TO GET SOME SNOW TOMORROW. SO HERE’S THE RAIN COMING IN RIGHT AROUND 1230 AND SOUTHERN COUNTIES BY TWO, 3:00, THE ENTIRE AREA IS SEEING RAIN AND THERE’LL BE SOME RAIN SHOWERS AROUND FOR THE EVENING COMMUTE. SO ANY SNOW THAT YOU DO GET IN THE MORNING COULD POTENTIALLY BE MELTED AND GONE BY THE TIME WE HIT THE EVENING. THURSDAY LOOKS BLUSTERY BEHIND THE SYSTEM. THERE MAY BE A LEFTOVER FLURRY. SO HERE’S A LOOK AT OUR SNOW TOTAL MAP. MOST OF OUR SOUTHERN SOUTHEASTERN COUNTIES, ACCORDING TO TO GO A LITTLE BIT OF A FOUR INCH STRIPE, 2 TO 4 INCH STRIPE HERE FROM CHAMBERSBURG TO HARRISBURG TO LEBANON, AND THEN THE FURTHER NORTH AND WEST YOU GO WHERE THAT WINTER STORM WATCHES POSTED UP TOWARD LEWISTOWN AND SELINSGROVE. YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY OF GETTING MORE THAN FOUR INCHES OF SNOW. SO HERE’S OUR TEN DAY FORECAST. NOT A BIG STORM TOMORROW, BUT IMPACT DAY NONETHELESS, ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE TRAVELING LATE MORNING OR EARLY AFTERNOON. THE ROADS COULD BE SNOW COVERED IN MANY AREAS BY THE TIME WE HIT THE EVENING, THOUGH, TOMORROW ALL WET ROADS THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY SHOULD BE MAIN
