40s today, snow in the forecast this weekend
Today will be mostly cloudy with a high near 44. There's an air quality alert for Lancaster County in place until Friday.
Temperatures will slowly drop back down into the 20s and 30s heading into the weekend after Friday, with a high near 21 expected on Saturday and snow back in the forecast on Sunday.
Chances are increasing for a winter storm late Sun-early Mon. Heavy snow amounts are possible, but depend on the placement of the rain/mix line and the dry slot - both related to the storm's track.

Brides speak out after Penn Township woman charged with defrauding them in wedding scheme
A Penn Township woman was charged earlier this week after police say she defrauded more than a dozen brides-to-be out of thousands of dollars in a scheme where she offered hair and makeup services with no intentions of completing the work.
“She didn’t feel that she had done anything wrong," Jeni Nulty, who was married in November and paid the woman $1,300 said of Holly Boyer, the woman behind the scheme. "She thought that she was protected by bankruptcy, and that she could take our money and not deliver services. I knew that that was not right.”
Boyer, who is currently free on unsecured bail, advertised her business, Extreme Beauty, on social media and bridal websites, where she found soon-to-be brides from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia and Maryland.
In total, 18 women lost $15,590.25 in Boyer's scheme.
