Extreme heat turns to severe thunderstorms this week

Colder weather expected through the work week, snow overnight

Colder weather is expected to stay in York County throughout the work week, according to weather officials.

Paul Head, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in State College, said Wednesday, Dec. 13, that the cooler weather will continue until Friday, Dec. 15.

He said it will be about 15 degrees below average, which is about 42 degrees this time of year.

“It should start moderating about Friday,” he said.

Paul Walker, senior meteorologist for AccuWeather in State College, said an air flow from Canada is bringing in the cold. Like Head, Walker said the cooler weather is expected to last through the work week.

“Looks like there is some moderation that takes place over the weekend," he said. Walker said temperatures should be back to normal by next week.

Snow: In addition to cooler weather, York County could see a little snow Wednesday into Thursday.

Both Head and Walker said the area could see a coating to an inch of snow in some areas.

The snow could start Wednesday evening.

“It should be over by 2 or 3 in the morning," Head said.

Walker said any snow should be cleared by the Thursday commute. He warned people should still be looking for slick spots.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a high of 33 and low of 19 for Thursday, and a high of 37 and low of 22 for Friday.
