CWS Forecast: Ridge and Valley Region 

Today will feature mostly sunny skies across the state with temperatures consistent in the lower to upper 30s for a majority of the Commonwealth. Lows Wednesday night will dip into the 20s, cooling the ground enough to support accumulation of precipitation. Thursday’s storm will wedge its way into southern Pennsylvania in the morning and continue to take over the state throughout the afternoon and evening hours. A mix of precipitation is possible, including: snow, freezing rain, and sleet for different areas of the state. The timing of freezing rain and sleet will make all the difference for snow totals. If you are traveling home for break on Thursday, be sure to plan accordingly and travel safely as roads can be dangerous with the mix of precipitation that is expected, especially freezing rain. The storm will clear out of Pennsylvania Friday afternoon and into the evening. High pressure builds back into our area over the weekend and temperatures will rebound back into the 40s with conditions looking fairly dry.
