The snow has started to fall here in Central Pennsylvania. During the afternoon and evening hours we will see some heavier bursts of snow. At times, we could have snow rates of 2-4″ per hour. The National Weather Service continues a Winter Storm Warning for Jefferson, Cambria, Blair, Huntingdon, Bedford, and Somerset Counties through 7:00 AM Thursday morning. A Winter Storm Warning continues for Centre, Clearfield, Elk and Cameron Counties until Thursday at 10:00 AM.
We will see more snowfall in the east compared to the west. East and around I-99 could see the highest amounts between 12″ to 18″ of snowfall. In the Laurel Highlands and Clearfield County there could be around 9-12″ of snow. Elk, Cameron, and Jefferson Counties could see 6-9″ of snowfall. It does look like an all snow event, and snow amounts could change depending on the track of the low-pressure system and how fast it moves. This will disrupt travel and creating slick and icy roadways as well as reduce visibility mainly during the afternoon through the overnight hours.
