Heads-Up for Pennsylvania Winter Weather Event tonight and Wednesday

Heads-Up for Pennsylvania Winter Weather Event tonight and Wednesday

Passed Along By Potter County Dept. Of Emergency Services

Just a brief "heads-up" on a winter precipitation event on tap for tonight into Wednesday. A weak storm system will pass south of Pennsylvania tonight. Although precipitation amounts not too great (mainly less than 1/2 inch total water equivalent), the combination of this precipitation with marginal temperatures will lead to a mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and even some plain rain. Detailed forecasts and the latest details can be obtained from your local NWS office. (weather.gov).

- Overview...
Some snow, along with a wintry mix of precipitation in some areas, expected overnight and early Wednesday across the Commonwealth.

- Timing...
Precipitation will move into the southern tier of Pennsylvania early this evening...then spread north. Heaviest period of precipitation will be overnight. Storm is fast moving...and will taper off from southwest to northeast during Wednesday.

- Temperatures...
Lows tonight in the mid to upper 20s in most areas...but generally staying near or slightly above freezing along and south of the turnpike. Highs Wednesday mid 30s to mid 40s.

- Precipitation Type...
Much of central and northeast Pennsylvania will see a mainly snow event...but could see some sleet mixed in at times. Southwest, south central and southeast Pennsylvania will see more of a mixed precipitation event, with possibility of snow, sleet, freezing rain and even some plain rain.

- Snow accumulation...
A general 1 to 4 inch snowfall will cut across central and northeast Pennsylvania...with some portions in far northeast Pennsylvania approaching 5 inches. There may be some sleet and even freezing rain mixed in...which would keep snow accumulations down where that occurs. Across southern, southeast and southwest Pennsylvania...there is a greater potential for mixed precipitation (sleet and/or freezing rain)...but temperatures will also be warm enough to support even some plain rain at times...also keeping snow accumulations down. Extreme southeast and southwest Pennsylvania will see a mainly rain event. Across the Northwest...snow accumulations will be light.
