Waves of frigid air and episodes of snow will affect the Harrisburg area through the end of the month.

Highs Friday will be within a couple degrees of 20 F.

It may not be until Saturday before temperatures briefly approach the freezing mark, only to plummet again.

Additional Alberta Clipper storms will swing through the region into next week.

A large Alberta Clipper storm passing by to the north this weekend can bring a period or two of snow on Saturday, followed by a return of cold air Saturday night.

Another Alberta Clipper may visit the area during Sunday night into Monday with a chance of snow.

The air following the Monday clipper could rival the coldest of the season so far.
