    Play video An expert analysis on the snow threat is given in the above AccuWeather.com video.

    As cold air lingers around Harrisburg, Pa., through midweek, a snowstorm will graze the region.

    Through Wednesday, high temperatures will be held to the upper 30s, which is more representative of a typical January day. A high in the middle 50s is more common this time of year.

    While the storm delivering a bit of snow will not evolve into a blizzard until after departing Harrisburg, an inch or two is still expected through Tuesday night.

    The majority of the snow that falls during the daytime will accumulate on grassy and elevated surfaces. It would take a heavy burst of snow, which cannot be ruled out for Tuesday, to overcome the effects of the strong March sun and briefly turn roads slippery.

    Gusty winds in the wake of the snow could cause Wednesday to be the coldest day of the week, in terms of AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

    Temperatures are forecast to rebound to or above seasonable levels late in the week.
