    Harrisburg: Snowstorm, Cold Blast on the Way

    By By Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.
    January 22, 2014, 12:59:46 AM EST

    A storm delivering snow and deteriorating travel conditions will continue around Harrisburg through the drive home Tuesday.

    After a mild start to the week, a storm originating in western Canada was strengthening upon nearing the coast Tuesday and leading to dramatically colder conditions and travel delays.

    Ice can form on paved and concrete surfaces beneath the snow, making travel by vehicle and foot very slippery.

    Temperatures will fall into the teens during Tuesday afternoon and will reach the single digits Tuesday night as the wind increases. RealFeel® temperatures will dip well below zero.

    While the worst of the storm will be over Tuesday night, dangerous cold, slippery roads and sidewalks, blowing and drifting snow will still be a problem Wednesday morning.

    Frigid weather will continue through much of the balance of the week.

    Snow will fall from northern and western North Carolina to New England with the storm.
