The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Schuylkill County starting at midnight tonight until 9 a.m. Friday.

Long Island could get hit with up to five inches of snow as part of a winter storm that's expected to develop late Thursday night and continue through the treacherous morning commute.

The snow will start around midnight and may mix with rain about an hour after it starts according to NWS. Sunday's high temperature is now forecast to be 49 degrees, so there's little chance any snow that falls might stick around. The area could look like this again Friday.

The unusual weather predicted this week follows the rollercoaster-like pattern we saw in February, when temperatures crept up to the 70s only to dip back down to the 20s over the weekend.

It will be springlike Thursday, with highs reaching into the low to mid-70s in Kansas City.

The weather service also said there is a chance of at least moderate snowfall with a coastal storm Monday night into Tuesday.

Sunday night: A chance of rain before 2am, then a chance of rain and snow between 2am and 5am, then a chance of snow after 5am.

The weather service is forecasting a high temperature of 37 Friday dipping to 18 overnight, with highs near 30 Saturday and 33 Sunday and nighttime lows around 19 Saturday and Sunday nights.

Two inches of snow is possible in the Harrisburg, Carlisle, York, Lancaster, Lebanon and Newport areas. The weekend's chillier forecast follows a sunny Thursday with a high of 55. Up to a quarter inch could accumulate, according to forecasters. High of about 28.
