Summary: A snowy and very cold week ahead.
A much quieter day in store for Saturday although a few snow showers will continue across the Tiers, especially during the morning. An inch or less of new snowfall is anticipated. Temperatures on Saturday will remain cold with highs in the teens and wind chill readings in the teens BELOW zero.
Our next storm will approach the Tiers from the Ohio River Valley on Sunday. This storm will have the potential to bring us heavy snow, especially Sunday night into Monday. Right now, models have the storm center passing to the south of the Twin Tiers and this path will result in heavy snow across Pennsylvania with lighter snow to the north. The big question remains how far north the storm tracks which will ultimately affect how much snow we will receive. Confidence on a plowable snowfall is high at this time. It is still too early to get into specifics regarding snowfall accumulation, however models are pointing toward either side of 5 inches, with higher amounts to the south and lower amounts to the north. We will continue to track this developing storm system and we will provide a snowfall accumulation forecast if conditions warrant.
We will be on the back end of the storm on Tuesday and winds will come from the northwest. As a result, very cold Arctic air will overspread the Tiers once again. Low temperatures Tuesday morning will be in the single digits below zero then climb into the lower teens. Otherwise partly cloudy and breezy conditions will prevail.
Another weak clipper system will move through Wednesday into Thursday providing another chance for scattered snow showers.
