A wintry mix will move through the region this afternoon ahead of a cold front bringing rain and snow before arctic air returns.
Updated: Sunday morning, January 5th
Reported by: Meteorologist Steve Newton

A freezing rain advisory will be in effect for Cameron, Clinton, Centre, Huntingdon, Fulton, and Mifflin Counties from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today. Even though Blair and Bedford Counties are not under the advisory, people in those counties could still see some ice accumulation. Showers return today, first from the south as rain and freezing rain, and then a cold front from the west as a rain/snow mix before turning to all snow late tonight and into Monday. We could see a trace to 2” of snow Monday, but the bigger story will be a strong blast of arctic air. Once the front passes early Monday temperatures will fall steadily through the day, reaching near the low teens or upper single digits by the evening commute. A wind chill watch is in effect for Monday afternoon through Wednesday morning for Elk, Cameron, Jefferson, Clearfield, Indiana, Cambria, and Somerset Counties. As the arctic air moves in, those locations could see wind chill values between -25 and -35°. Valley spots could see dangerous wind chill values as well, so please remember to bring in any animals. There will be subzero temperatures as we go into Tuesday, and some spots may not get above zero Tuesday afternoon. The arctic air will not stick around long as milder air will return to the region for the end of next week.
