We are starting off 2021 on the quiet side…at least for about 18 hours. Much of New Years day will dry with mostly cloudy skies. It isn't until the evening hours when a wintry mix will develop across the Southern Tier and northern PA. Travel will become slick as Snow and sleet will coat roadways initially. Precipitation will then begin to transition over to freezing rain which will be impactful. Highest ice accretion values will be observed out in Delaware County.

After Midnight, temperatures warm so freezing rain will change over to plain rain. Showers will linger through the morning hours on Saturday.

Unfortunately, another system will move in on Sunday bringing more snow to the region. Models are starting to suggest that it will likely be a few inches.
