    Cold Weekend for Harrisburg, York, Lancaster

    Cold air and gusty winds are taking aim on southern Pennsylvania for Saturday and Sunday.

    After temperatures flirted with the 60-degree mark on some thermometers over the Thanksgiving holiday, a strong cold front will swing through Friday evening bringing spotty rain showers.

    Arctic air follows the front for the weekend with winds gusting in the neighborhood of 35 mph.

    With actual temperatures ranging from the 30s at night and only peaking in the 40s during the day, the combination of wind and other atmospheric conditions will make for AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures in the teens and 20s respectively.


    The cold flow of air across the Great Lakes will set up the first widespread lake-effect snow event of the season Friday night and Saturday. For those traveling into the Appalachians, there is a risk of brief, but blinding snow squalls.


    There is a chance of a passing flurry reaching as far east as the I-95 corridor.

    The next chance of precipitation spans Tuesday into Tuesday night.

    While a major storm does not seem likely, a modest system could bring a period of rain, snow or wintry mix to the mid-Atlantic and southern New England.

    More updates on the weather situation for next week will follow through this weekend on AccuWeather.com.

    Despite the warm appearance to the weather during recent days, temperatures for the month of November have averaged about 3 degrees below normal. The normal November average temperature for south central Pennsylvania (all highs and lows) this month is about 45 degrees.
