A major rainstorm coming into Pennsylvania on Monday will turn to snow later this week, according to a forecast by the National Weather Service.
The rain will begin overnight, bringing between half an inch to an inch and a half of rain to different parts of the state.
The most rain will be seen in Hazleton, Allentown and Philadelphia, according to the NWS. Harrisburg, Lancaster and Gettysburg are all expected to receive about an inch of rain.
Monday’s rain could include thunder in the Harrisburg area during the afternoon, according to the NWS.
The rain is expected to last all day Monday, but as the system persists through the rest of the week, temperatures will drop overnight through Tuesday and Wednesday.
These drops in temperature will bring snow to western and northwestern Pennsylvania, including 6 to 12 inches in Meadville and 6 to 8 inches in Erie.
Snow is not expected in the Harrisburg or Philadelphia area, but will likely reach Breezewood, State College, Hazelton, Williamsport and Scranton.
According to the NWS, the drop in temperature will rise from highs in the mid-1950s and low 60s on Monday to highs in the 1930s and 40s on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The NWS reminds people to be careful when driving in rainy and snowy conditions and to leave extra space between vehicles.
