Northeastern Pennsylvania: Rounds of Snow Forecast for the Weekend
Rounds of snow and flurries are forecast for northeastern Pennsylvania through next week.
The snowy episodes are being caused by storms originating from Western Canada and are known as Alberta Clippers.
Most storms will struggle to bring a flurry. However, a small number of the storms can bring accumulating snow.
On such storm will swing through later Friday night into Saturday with 1 to 3 inches of snow with locally higher amounts possible in the Poconos and Endless Mountains.
Because some of the snow can be briefly heavy and will fall during the early morning hours, when temperatures are at their lowest point, there can be slippery travel. The snow will tend to melt off during the midday and afternoon hours.
Another weak storm can bring a couple of snow showers Sunday into Monday.
The pattern will also favor bouts of brisk winds.
After moderate cold through Monday, more substantial cold follows later next week.
Later in the month, frigid air that pushes southward over the Midwest will turn eastward and could alter the weak storm pattern to one that favors more potent storms and heavier snow.
