Even in the absence of a major winter storm, accumulating snow still threatens to cause problems for travelers around Harrisburg on Sunday.

Steady snow arrives for Sunday afternoon and evening, accumulating a fresh inch or two.

While not a significant event, a couple inches of snow is still enough to cause slick travel on area interstates and roads.

Motorists should also prepare for a period of reduced visibility, while airline passengers may encounter delays.

In the wake of the snow, fresh frigid air will arrive for Monday as some sunshine returns.

Temperatures will be held to the upper 20s on Monday. The cold will persist through Wednesday with highs in the lower 20s anticipated for both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Later in the week, a Southern storm will have to be watched for possible impacts in the Northeast due to snow, ice and rain before Valentine's Day.

It all began in 1878 when a farmer casually told drug store clerk William Allison that it always seemed to rain on July 29th in this southwestern PA town. The clerk made a note of it and started keeping a yearly tabulation. July 29th, 2001 was the 104th rainfall in the past 124 years on this date.
