A weak, quick-moving disturbance will bring light snow to the area Friday afternoon before it transitions to freezing drizzle Friday night.

Temperatures Friday afternoon will rise to around 40 degrees, and light snow will spread over the region. The light snow will generally make the roads wet. However, there can be slippery spots. A coating of snow is possible on the grassy surfaces.

Temperatures will dip Friday evening. As spotty freezing drizzle occurs Friday night, especially in the Mount Pocono area, untreated roads could become icy.

Any spotty ice will quickly diminish this weekend as temperatures will rise to around 40 degrees again for Saturday and into the lower 50s for Sunday as warmer air moves into the region.

The mild period will continue into next week as temperatures reach the lower 60s before a cold front brings temperatures to the lower 40s for midweek.
