A major winter storm will continue to effect the region through tonight. The snow has mixed with and changed to sleet and freezing rain. Do be careful as temperatures are still below the freezing mark and as the sun goes down, icy spots will continue to develop. Most of the precipitation will be freezing rain and rain tonight with temperatures holding nearly steady and a significant build up of ice possible in some locations. There will also be some snow mixed in well north of I-80 and in places when the precipitation becomes harder. Additional accumulation of snow will be little or nothing tonight in most spots with a little more in the Laurel Highlands where the precipitation will go back to all snow showers later tonight. Up to a few inches possible on some of the higher elevations north of of I-80.  On the backside of this system will be windy and cold with snow showers and a burst of snow. New accumulation on Wednesday will range from a coating to an inch or so in the valleys near and east of I-99 to a few inches in the Laurel Highlands. Temperatures during the day on Wednesday will drop, reaching back into the 20s in most spots by the end of the day. With the falling temperatures, some roads could ice up so do be careful in your travels. It will be brisk and cold Thanksgiving Day with some leftover flurries or snow showers, variable cloudiness with highs in the 20s. Another weak disturbance may bring scattered clouds and flurries Friday and it will remain cold with highs only in the lower 30s. Saturday will be partly sunny and chilly with highs in the upper 30s. The mercury will rebound a little as we head into next week.
