    Cold Air, Maybe Snow Headed Back to Harrisburg

    It has been a long, cold winter in the Harrisburg, Pa., area, and another cold blast is on the way.

    Temperatures since December have averaged 4.2 degrees below normal around Harrisburg. During the past several months, more than the average amount of snow has fallen with 42.9 inches of snow so far, compared to a normal to date of 29.3 inches.

    Moving forward after a mild start to spring, the weather will offer more setbacks for folks wanting warmth and to end their relationship with winter gear.

    While the cold waters of the Atlantic tend to slow the progression of seasons around the area, the spring warmup is likely to be delayed a bit more by persistent outbreaks of air from Canada.

    One such cold blast will hold temperatures on Sunday to the middle 40s, followed by highs only in the middle 30s for Monday.

    Another storm is being watched for possible snow across the Northeast by midweek.

    Current indications point toward Harrisburg escaping the worst of the storm, which could evolve into a blizzard across eastern New England. The city, however, may not escape some snow on Tuesday.
