    Central Pennsylvania Bracing for a Blast of Winter

    A double-barreled blast of cold air this weekend will deliver the lowest temperatures of the season so far to central Pennsylvania, including Happy Valley, while a coastal storm is closely watched for Wednesday.

    For folks heading to the Penn State/Nebraska game at University Park, Pa., Saturday afternoon, be prepared for RealFeel® temperatures plunging into the 20s and perhaps late-day snow showers.

    Arctic winds gusting between 40 and 50 mph will begin to blow across the area later Saturday, and by Sunday, actual temperatures will fail to get out of the 20s in many areas. RealFeel temperatures will be in the single digits at times.

    Just as the second part of the cold blast arrives Saturday night, a burst of snow can occur.

    AccuWeather.com meteorologists continue to track a storm that will affect the Southwest into the weekend.

    During next week, that storm will try to take a northward turn after affecting the South with rain.

    Travel disruptions are likely along the Atlantic Seaboard, even if the storm and its snow were to stay east of central Pennsylvania.

    Details on the storm will continue be released through the weekend into next week.
