Lake effect snow showers and flurries will persist through much of
the day across the northern and eastern portions of the state
prior to high pressure building in tonight. 

Additional light to moderate snow accumulations are likely over
northwestern Pennsylvania...which could bring storm total
snowfall since Thursday to over 30 inches across some locations in
Northern, and far western Warren County.

High pressure will bring a brief period of partial clearing and
tranquil conditions as it's center slides by just to our south. 

High temperatures today will vary from the lower 20s across the
northern and western mountains, to the mid 30s in the southeast.
Lows tonight will be in the teens across the northern and western
mountains, and within a few degrees of 20 elsewhere.

Later in the weekend, an area of low pressure will track east
from the Ohio Valley and impact Pennsylvania with another round of
light snow Sunday into Sunday night, then a mix of sleet and
freezing rain late Sunday night and Monday morning.
