Snowfall tapers by dawn Thursday. High-pressure builds into the region and will keep the Twin Tiers dry through the afternoon as intervals of sunshine and clouds are expected. Light north winds will keep high temperatures today below normal, in the mid to upper-20s.  North winds range anywhere from 5-10 mph through the afternoon.

Cloud cover is quick to return Thursday evening as a disturbance moves through central Pennsylvania. The majority of the Twin Tiers will stay mainly quiet through the overnight hours but a few flurries are possible in northeast Pa. Overnight lows drop to the teens with winds shifting out of the east, anywhere from 5-10 mph.

The chance for stray flurries continues Friday, but high pressure keeps most of the viewing area dry. High temperatures Friday will be near 40 degrees. A weak area of low pressure brings a chance for light snow to rainfall late morning Saturday. Highs Saturday near 40 degrees. Another area of low pressure looks to develop and move up the east coast Sunday into early next week, possibly bringing accumulating snow. Snowfall totals are still a bit uncertain. How far the system tracks inland plays a big role in how much snowfall we’ll see. Keeping an eye on this system as we get closer to the weekend.
