Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy, blustery and noticeably colder with a snow shower around. Low: 17
Late Monday night and Tuesday our area received snow with most areas receiving 2 - 4 inches of snow. Some areas (south and west) saw heavier snow bands that resulted in 4 - 8 inches of snow (including Schuylkill, Chester and Berks counties). There are many reports of snow covered roadways (especially secondaries) and slippery travel will continue overnight. Overnight low temperatures will range from the upper 20's - 30 degrees.
There will be instability in the atmosphere Wednesday, Thursday and Friday as this upper level trough (cold air above us) slowly slides away from the region. As a result, flurries or a few snow showers are possible with little (less than an inch) or no accumulation possible. Highs over this stretch will fall from the mid and upper 30s on Wednesday into the upper 20s Thursday and Friday. Breezy conditions will make it feel even colder.
We may see the coldest air of the season this upcoming Valentine's weekend. Daytime highs will top out in the teens and overnight lows will fall to near or below 0. On both days temperatures will be accompanied by a breeze (giving us wind chills well below 0). Otherwise, a flurry or two is possible Saturday morning, but besides that the weekend will be dry with plenty of sunshine.
