YOU WATCH DOUBLE DUTY GAIL NEWS 8 OR FOLLOW YOUR NEXT WINTER STORM HERE IN THE VALLEY. IT GETS INTERESTING QUICKLY ON OUR THURSDAY MORNING. WELCOME BACK. WE ARE NEARLY AT 520. THIS IS OUR LIVE GLANCING YORK NOW, LOOKING EAST. FINALLY WE WILL SEE SOME SUN MIXED WITH CLOUDS AS WE GO THROUGH THE DAY, AS THEY BEGIN THICKER AS THIS STORM SYSTEM MOVES EASTLY, SUPER DOPPLER 8 EIGHT. THOSE CLOUDS SHOW TO THE WEST. BUT FOR NOW, MOST OF US STILL SEE THE STARRY SKY. BUT THERE IS ALL THE MOISTURE WITH THIS STORM SYSTEM AND STILL SEE SOME TORNADO WARNINGS IN THE DEEP SOUTH. HEAVY RAIN. IT ALL MOVES IN OUR DIRECTION AND THAT GOES INTO THE COLD AIR WE HAVE NOW, CREATE A WINTER BEAUTIFUL OF SNOW, ICE, ICE RAIN AND FINALLY RAIN. WE ARE AT SIX NEW ZEALAND’S GROVE AND YORK SO JOIN THEM, 3011 AND WE ARE AT 24 IN THE CAPITAL AND 23 IN LANCASTER. OR WE GET ONLY IN THE MID THIRTY TILL ALMOST 40 THIS AFTERNOON. COLD FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. TONIGHT WE BEGIN PRECIPITATION DEVELOPING LATE, ESPECIALLY WHERE THAT ICY MIX OF IRON AND FREEZING RAIN WITH TEMPS, COLD IN THE MID TWENTIES TO NEAR 30’S. AND THEN TOMORROW WE EXPECT DIABILITY AND ICE RAINS FINALLY CHANGE TO SOME SNOW. AND THEN FINALLY A COLD RAIN WHEN THE WARM AIR WINDS AS HIGH AS CLIMBING FROM 36 TO ROUND 40. WE HAVE WINTER WEATHER ADVICE NOW ISSUED FOR THE WHOLE VALLEY ROUTING THROUGH TOMORROW EVENING WITH THE WINTER STORM STILL WATCHES TO US NORTH AND WEST FOR THE HEAVY AMOUNTS OF SNOW AND FUTURE. WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR MAYBE SEVEN INCHES, FOUR OR FIVE TO POSSIBLY SIXTH INCHES PER HOUR FOR NORTHWEST NEIGHBORHOODS. HERE’S A FORECAST, 4:00 AM IN THE MORNING. WE SEE THAT MIX. THAT’S THE SNOW, THE DIVERSITY, A SLIGHTLY FREEZING RAIN. AND YOU CAN SEE THE TEMPERATURE IN THE TWENTY AND THIRTY WHEN THE RAINFALL STARTS TO DROP HEAVY. THAT’S WHEN WE START SEEING THIS CHANGE ACROSS THE SNOW THROUGH WHAT WE CALL DYNAMIC COOLING. WE REALLY SEE THAT CHANGE FROM ZEAL TO SNOW, HEAT TAKEN FROM THE ATMOSPHERE. AND YOU CAN SEE THAT WHITE, THE BLUE, THAT’S THE SNOW TO MIDDLE TO LATE MORNING TILL LUNCH TIME. AND IT KEEPS FALLING THROUGH THE CAPITAL IN OUR NORTHERN COMMUNITIES MID-AFTERNOON WITH THAT RAIN. I THINK FOR MOST OF US, BY EIGHT, 9:00, WE MAY SEE RAIN. BUT THAT EXCLUDES OUR NORTHWEST COMMUNITIES, WHERE WE WILL STILL SEE ANY OF THAT MIX DURING THURSDAY NIGHT AND EARLY FRIDAY. THERE WE SEE THE PINK AND THE PURPLE. THAT’S THE MORE MODERATE BUILD-UP OF SNOWFALL, POSSIBLY NEAR A HALF A FEET OR SO FURTHER SOUTH AND EAST, MAYBE AROUND LANCASTER IN NEW YORK, MAYBE AN INCH. AND THAT’S MAYBE MAYBE FROM THE SNOW IN SLEEP. BUT ICE IS A BIGGER CONCERN TO US. AND WE MAY SEE SOME ICE APPROACH, MAYBE A 10TH OF AN INCH OR SO IN SOME PLACES OF THOSE ICE RAINS BELOW, THE SNOW AND DIVISION. THAT MAY BE A VERY HARD JOURNEY TOMORROW. AND THAT’S THERE WE WILL FIND THE WORST OF THE JOURNEY FROM THE MORNING RIDE UNTIL DAY 12. IT DOES BEGIN TO IMPROVE TOWARD EVENING AS TEMPERATURES WARM ABOVE FREEDOM. SO, AGAIN, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE WGAL NEWS APP. YOU FOLLOW ALL THIS IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND. AND OF COURSE WE WILL GIVE EVERYTHING ON AL.COM AND TO SOCIAL MEDIA ASAP. OUR LATEST STORM DOING TEN DAYS WILL SHOW ALL THIS CLOSING FRIDAY SO MAY HAVE SOME LIGHT RAIN OR SNOW. I THINK AGAINST LUNCH TIME. AND WE SEE SOME SUNSHINE TAKE BACK AT LEAST A LITTLE BIT. SATURDAY MAY HAVE SOME FLIGHTS OR SNOWBUILDING AS THE UPPER LEVEL MOVES PART OF THIS STORM SYSTEM THROUGH SUNDAY. EVEN COLDER A LITTLE STRONG OUTSIDE WHEN Hanukkah BEGINS OR IN THE MIDDLE THIRTY. AND WE STAY COLD DURING OUR HOLIDAY WEEK. MONDAY AND TUESDAY WE ARE BACK THE UPPER THIRTIES. WINTER OFFICIALLY BEGINS ON WEDNESDAY AND THEN MAY GET SOME MORE WINTERS WEATHER POSSIBLE THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY OF NEXT

The winter storm is moving down on Pennsylvania and is expected to arrive late Wednesday, early Thursday

A messy winter storm will bring snow, sleet, sleet and rain to south-central Pennsylvania. And it’s starting to draw late tonight. The National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories for all counties in the Susquehanna Valley, except for Mifflin and Juniata counties, where winter storm watches have been issued. Ice storm warnings are also in effect for some western counties (see map below). Those watches and advisories are in effect from Wednesday evening through Friday morning. The WGAL News 8 Storm Team has designated Thursday as Impact Day. An Impact Day is a day with weather conditions likely to disrupt your normal daily schedule or routine. Areas along the Turnpike and I-81 will likely see several inches of snow/sleet with more slush/wet conditions the farther southeast you live. Lancaster is on the line, but it still looks like we’ll have an inch or so of snow/sleet before things turn into a cold rain Thursday night,” said WGAL meteorologist TJ Springer. Video below: Hour after hour of snow, sleet , projections of sleet and buildup Freezing rain a concern “We might see a frosting of ice under the snow. Some locations may see 0.1 to 0.2 inches of ice along with the snow/sleet. That would make traveling very arduous, so plan accordingly. Roads will be worst until mid-afternoon Thursday as temps will struggle warm, and we’ll be in the 20s Wednesday night. This means our surfaces will be below freezing for most of the day,” said TJ.

The National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories, watches and even warnings for some Pa counties.

Those watches and advisories are in effect from Wednesday evening through Friday morning.

The WGAL News 8 Storm Team has declared Thursday Impact Day.

An impact day is a day with weather conditions that are likely to disrupt your normal daily schedule or routine.

“Areas along the Turnpike and I-81 will likely see several inches of snow/sleet with more slush/wet conditions the farther southeast you live. Lancaster is on the line, but it still looks like we can pick up a few inches of snow/sleet before things turn to cold rain Thursday night,” said WGAL meteorologist TJ Springer.

Freezing rain a concern

“We could see a frosting of ice under the snow. In some locations 0.1 to 0.2 inches of ice would be seen along with the snow/sleet. That would make traveling very hard so plan accordingly. Roads will be the worst until mid-afternoon on Thursday as the temperature will have a hard time warming up, and Wednesday night we will be around 20 degrees. This means our surfaces will be below freezing for most of the day,” said TJ .
