Temperatures are going to drop once again heading into the weekend — the Wyoming Valley could also see some snow tossed into the mix.   The National Weather Service indicated that it was 15 degrees as of 5:54 a.m. at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport. Overcast skies greeted commuters to kick off the latter part of the week.   There will be a chance of flurries this morning, followed by a 50 percent chance of snow between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., followed by a chance of flurries for the remainder of the day. Less than half an inch of total snowfall is expected, and today’s high will be near 22 degrees.   Scattered flurries will be possible mainly between 11 p.m. tonight and into early Friday morning. Cloudy skies are predicted otherwise, with a low around 4 degrees, and wind chill values could dip to as low as -4 degrees.   Cloudy skies will gradually give way to mostly sunny skies on Friday, with a high near 19 degrees. Wind chill values could be as low as -5 degrees.   Mostly clear skies will follow on Friday night, with a low around zero.   Be sure to check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/timesleader for a daily look at our news coverage and weather updates!
