Reported by: Chief Meteorologist Joe Murgo

After a nice stretch of 6 days with highs above 40° in most places, we're back into a cold pattern this week. Tonight will be blustery with a partly to mostly cloudy sky. There will be snow showers around tonight, especially near and north of I-80 this evening and then scattered everywhere later tonight and Tuesday, especially along the higher terrain from Clearfield county to Somerset county. There will be spotty accumulations of a coating to perhaps an inch, but a few places could pick up a couple of inches, especially on some ridges where the snow showers persist. Temperatures tonight will drop into the teens and that means that there can be slippery spots on the roads early Tuesday morning. Temperatures will stay below freezing during the day on Tuesday but this time of the year, the sun angle will be enough to keep main roads good during the midday and afternoon hours. Wednesday may start off with some flurries or snow showers then clouds will try to break for some sunshine. Despite the breaks of sun, it will be cold with highs in the lower 20s. The next front will bring some flurries and snow showers on Thursday followed by a reinforcing shot of arctic air for Thursday night into Friday. The mercury will try to rebound a little on Saturday despite snow showers. The next significant weather maker could come our way with snow or a wintry mix Sunday night into Monday.
