No snow this weekend, but temperatures will drop

LOCK HAVEN — Winter is coming.

While there won’t be snow this weekend, Clinton County can expect some of its coldest weather in recent memory as a cold snap hits the area.

“We’re going to see some very cold weather, some very low temperatures,” said Tony Zartman, senior meteorologist at AccuWeather. “The wind will die down, but we’re going to see very cold temperatures across the county.”

Last night’s low was expected to dip into the upper teens. While we won’t see temperatures that low again this weekend, it certainly will be chilly for the next couple of days. Today will be cool with partial sunshine. The high today is expected to be 40. Tonight’s low will be 30.

Sunday will be mostly cloudy with a high of 49. The low on Sunday will be 37.

“We won’t see any snow this weekend. It will be cold, but dry,” Zartman said.

The next chance for snow will come Monday night into Tuesday morning, according to Zartman.

“There’s a strong chance for a snow shower Monday night, but it’s hard to put any amount (of accumulation) on it yet,” Zartman said.

Monday’s high will be in the mid-40s, but temperatures will take a significant drop throughout the day. Temperatures will be mired in the 30s for the remainder of the week.

The snow shower could cause slick spots on area roadways on Monday night and make the Tuesday morning commute interesting.

“There’s going to be a significant drop on the way,” Zartman said.

While the temperature drop may seem significant, Zartman said that it’s not that unusual.

“It’s not that odd. It’s been very mild recently and we really haven’t had any cold snaps. This is what we’re going to be going through now,” he said.
