Central Pennsylvania is expected to get snow Monday night into Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service, with most of the precipitation hitting the north-central part of the Commonwealth.
Harrisburg itself is likely to get about an inch, according to NWS forecasts as of Sunday afternoon, but areas around State College and further north toward the New York border are expected to receive several times that amount.
The NWS has issued a winter storm watch starting Monday evening and lasting through Tuesday afternoon, with “the potential for significant winter weather that may impact travel.”
Rain is expected to start Monday night and turn to snow in the early morning hours of Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), with the likelihood of rain lasting longer in south-central Pennsylvania and snow arriving sooner farther north.
Tuesday will also bring windy weather, with gusts up to 26 mph in the Harrisburg area.
Snowfall is likely to total less than an inch in Harrisburg, according to the latest NWS maps, with totals increasing to the 4-to-6-inch range around State College, 6 to 8 inches around Williamsport, and up to 12 inches around Wellsboro and toward the New York border.
