Winter Storm Watch – Schuylkill County

NWS predicts between 4-6 inches of snow and one-tenth of an inch of ice will fall over the Pottsville area.

Areas north and east of Pottsville could get more snow and less ice. Snow totals may be less in the western reaches of the coal region with more ice.

Winter Storm Ezekiel

The Weather Channel is calling this Winter Storm Ezekiel.

The winter storm likely will impact roadways and make travel very difficult for the duration of the storm. You can pretty much bank on travel disruptions into Monday morning if this early forecast is accurate.

According to NWS, the first part of the storm begins early Sunday morning with mostly ice and a wintry mix of precipitation. After a brief lull, an all-snow event will follow. The more NE you get in NEPA, the heavier the snowfall totals get.

You can get more updates from National Weather Service – State College by tracking its Twitter account.
