Winter Storm Warning
The National Weather Service in State College has posted a Winter Storm Warning for most of central Pennsylvania... including Columbia and Montour Counties. A winter storm warning is in effect from 10 AM Wednesday through 7 AM Thursday. The warning replaces a winter storm watch which had been in effect. The Susquehanna valley may see 3 to 6 inches of snow followed by a heavy layer of sleet.
In essence... heavy snow will spread in from the south during late Wednesday morning and afternoon. It will mix with and turn to sleet. Freezing rain may also become mixed in the evening. The mixed precip will taper off to snow showers late Wednesday night. For the most part the wind will be 5 to 10 MPH... with gusts of up to 25 MPH. We'll keep you up to date starting with the WHLM Morning Buzz beginning 6 AM Wednesday morning on Newsradio 930 / WHLM.
