    Northeastern Pennsylvania: Mild Weekend to Be Followed by Cold, Snow

    Mild weather is in store for much of the weekend around northeastern Pennsylvania, with temperatures climbing well into the 40s.

    The warmth will continue to reduce the snow cover gradually throughout the region, as well as the giant piles of snow at shopping malls and along the borders of streets.

    Sudden fluctuations are possible on the Susquehanna and Lackawanna rivers as ice may begin to break and shift.

    The temperature will dip to or below freezing at night. A few icy spots can develop.

    This mild pattern will soon come to an end.


    The weather this coming week will turn progressively colder and will bring more of the white stuff.

    A weak system will bring the chance of a bit of snow or a wintry mix as early as Sunday afternoon and evening.

    Another weak system may swing through with a bit of snow on Tuesday.

    A third system will have to be watched for the potential for more substantial snow by Wednesday.
