Temperature highs for Saturday aren’t expected to climb past the mid teens, says National Weather Service (NWS)  meteorologist Joanne LaBounty.
“The low tomorrow morning will be the lower single digits, 2 to 5 degrees. That’ll be warm compared to what it will be by Monday Morning,” LaBounty said in an interview Friday afternoon. “Monday morning looks like minus 10 to minus 15.”
It hasn’t been this cold in about five or six years, LaBounty said.
Friday’s snow totals ranged from four to five inches throughout the area. Prompton Dam, Pleasant Mt. and Pocono Peak Lake had each received four inches of snow by 7 a.m., while Milanville had recorded 4.2 inches at 7:45 a.m. 
Dingmans Ferry, Pike County, saw 5.1 inches of snow by 5:45 a.m., while Thompson, Susquehanna County had an even 5 inches. 
“The four to five inch totals were quite common across the whole area, all of the northeast Pennsylvania counties and central New York,” LaBounty said.
