Tuesday will be a much brighter and tranquil day. A good deal of sunshine will warm us back to near to just above 30° during the afternoon. Temperatures will drop back down into the 20s Tuesday evening then clouds will increase as the next storm system comes our way. This storm is going to give us a wintry mess as we head from Wednesday through Wednesday night. Snow will develop Wednesday morning and then change to sleet and then freezing rain Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night. There will be at least a few inches of snow in places before the changeover followed by a significant build up in places Wednesday night. Because of this, a winter storm watch is in effect Wednesday and Wednesday night for Cambria, Blair, and Huntingdon Counties to the south and east. Do keep in mind that travel will also be hazardous in areas outside of this watch area too. Temperatures will slowly rise through the 20s Wednesday and into the 30s Wednesday night.
We’ll still have rain or a touch of ice in places early Thursday then clouds will break during the afternoon with a milder afternoon. Highs on Thursday will reach well into the 40s. Friday will be a nice day with some sunshine and highs in the lower to middle 40s. Clouds from the next storm system will start to increase on Saturday followed by rain or a bit of a wintry mix later in the day. This precipitation will be mostly rain Saturday night into Sunday. Clouds will try to break later Sunday with highs in the lower to middle 40s. We’ll have a brisk day with a mix of clouds and sunshine on Monday with highs in the lower 40s. Temperatures will stay near to average for the end of the month later next week.
