WINTER STORM MAYA: Schuylkill County 4-8″ Snow and Ice

winter storm maya schuylkill county

Schuylkill County is under a Winter Storm Warning from noon on Monday, Feb. 11, until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12. The Weather Channel is naming this Winter Storm Maya.

Winter Storm Maya: Schuylkill County

The National Weather Service forecasts anywhere between 4-8 inches of snow will fall over Schuylkill County during this winter storm. A mix of precipitation is expected in this storm. At times, there will be snow, freezing rain, and plain rain. As much as one-tenth of an inch of ice accumulation is expected.

Temperatures will hover around the freezing mark through the duration of the storm.

Though the forecast is for 4-8 inches of snow, Accuweather is predicting about half that. Check out the possibilities below:

You can see that most of the snow is forecast to fall heaviest Monday evening. As much as 2 inches of snow from 7 p.m. until midnight with up to another inch of snow Wednesday.

Accuweather is predicting this to be a significant winter storm, regardless of the lower snow forecast. There is a 38% chance Schuylkill County gets more than 4″ of snow from Winter Storm Maya. Right now, the storm is expected to end as an icy mixed precipitation.

The ice is expected because temperatures in Schuylkill County should get above freezing on Tuesday. The forecast high temp on Tuesday is 33. The low temp on Monday night is 28.

Travel Disruption

The timing of the storm is likely to disrupt the evening rush hour on Monday and the morning rush hour on Tuesday.

Monday is starting out as a bit of a rough travel day. A fast-moving storm put about an inch of snow on the ground in Pottsville late Sunday night and into early Monday morning.

School delays and closings are likely, at least on Tuesday. That could affect the timing of the Schuylkill League Girls Basketball semifinals at Martz Hall in Pottsville.
