This may not be the whopper being hyped all week, but Schuylkill County is still in line for a significant snowstorm this weekend.
According to the latest projections from Accuweather.com, Schuylkill County residents can expect anywhere between 4-8 inches of snow from Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon.
This is what The Weather Channel is calling “Winter Storm Harper”.
The heaviest part of the snowfall is expected to occur between the late evening hours on Saturday and after dawn on Sunday. Accuweather predicts there will be about 4 inches of snow on the ground by 7 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 21. Another inch of snow may fall by 1 p.m. Sunday.
Arctic Air to Follow Winter Storm Harper
The worst part of this snowstorm may not be the accumulation but what follows. Forecasters are predicting that an arctic blast of air will rush in after the precipitation moves out of the area. Low temperatures are expected to drop to 1 on Sunday night. The frigid air is expected to stay through at least Monday when temperatures could struggle to get out of the single digits in some parts of Schuylkill County.
