snow on tuesday

*** UPDATE: The snowstorm forecast for Schuylkill County hasn’t really materialized but conditions on the road could remain hazardous as temperatures drop steadily through the day and night. Just another coating to an inch of snow is expected to fall in the county the rest of the day. ***

*** UPDATE: The National Weather Service Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for Schuylkill County Tuesday, 1 am until Wednesday 1 am. ***

There’s no week of panic ahead of it, but it’s going to snow on Tuesday in Schuylkill County.

According to, anywhere between 3-6 inches of snow is forecast for the area on Tuesday. The storm is expected to start as snow, change to snow and rain and then back to snow through Tuesday night.

Accuweather says there is a 56% chance the area will get between 3-6 inches of snow on Tuesday when the storm is finished.

However, if you believe chief meteorologist and NEPA native Bernie Rayno in a recent Periscope he did on Twitter, this could be a bigger storm. He says the trend is setting up for a dumping of snow on the I-81 corridor. He says he can see a band of snow accumulation across central Pennsylvania in the 6-12 inch range. On Monday morning, however, he wasn’t singing the same tune. His new forecast is closer in line with official storm warnings.

The storm is likely to be a nightmare locally.

Forecasters are also predicting a polar vortex-like trough of air to invade the area on Wednesday. So, if you don’t get the snow out of the way as it’s falling, good luck moving it the rest of the week.

The National Weather Service forecasts high temperatures of 17 degrees on Wednesday and 10 degrees on Thursday. Low temperatures are expected to be in the single digits each night, including Friday night. Lows on Wednesday night are forecast at -3 degrees. Wind chills in some areas could go well below -20 during this extremely cold stretch at the end of the week.
