If you see snow, it’s not your imagination.
The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for the first snow of late 2017.
An arctic blast from the north combined with low pressure to the south of Pennsylvania will cause a wintry mix Tuesday. The NWS said in a statement there would be rain, sleet and snow across central Pennsylvania.
Snow accumulations might add up to an inch or two on cold, grassy surfaces in the Laurel Highlands region with the tallest elevations receiving up to three inches of snow. Forecasts initially showed sleet and snow might shower Centre County from 9-10 a.m. followed by several hours of rain, but the reverse has happened with light rain followed by steady afternoon snow flurries.
Never miss a local story.
The temperature in the Mid-Atlantic region is about 10 to 15 degrees below normal, according to AccuWeather. Temperatures might stay below 50 for the next week, with the lowest temperature hitting 16 degrees Friday. The cold temperatures will not be met with more snow, according to NWS and AccuWeather forecasts.
The week of Nov. 6 to Nov. 10, coincidentally, is Winter Weather Awareness Week in Pennsylvania, according to the NWS.
