Valentine's Day on Thursday, Feb. 14 will be mostly sunny with a high around 40.

The statement said a mix of snow and ice pellets should touch down overnight on Monday.

The London area is in for a messy mix of snow and freezing drizzle early this week. Heavy, wet snow will continue to fall through the rest of Monday evening. According to AccuWeather.com, there is now a 47 percent chance of 3 to 6 inches of accumulation in the area, a 40 percent chance of between 1 and 3 inches and a 3 percent chance of 6 to 10 inches of snowfall. The biggest snowfall totals will likely be into Mifflin and Juniata counties where 6"+ is possible". However, temperatures should rise above freezing around or before daybreak. That means, although rain will be falling through the atmosphere, it will freeze on contact with the roads and anything at the surface.

The Sunday forecast includes a chance of rain, freezing rain and snow in the pre-dawn hours, followed by rain through the rest of Sunday. Any ice accumulation is unsafe and will create an absolute nightmare on the roads.

How much snow and freezing rain a region receives will depend on the exact track of the low.
