Very cold weather will dominate central Pennsylvania through Friday.

Temperatures are projected to average 15 to 30 degrees below the normal high of 40 F for late February.

The region and much of the Northeast are forecast to be in for wintry precipitation beginning this weekend.

The heaviest snow, ice and rain is likely later Sunday into Monday. Another push of cold air will follow.

The details on the storm, timing and which forms of precipitation are likely to dominate will follow in the days ahead.

Until then, episodes of snow will generally be light and more of a nuisance.
