Frigid weather will dominate the Harrisburg, Pa., area through Friday.

Temperatures are projected to average 15 to 25 degrees below the normal high of 44 F for late February.

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

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

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

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