Forecasters at NWS predict little snow accumulation for Schuylkill County now. The storm system will affect the area in two stages.

On Sunday morning, between 5-7 a.m., a wintry mix should start to cover Schuylkill County. This wintry mix persists through much of the day on Sunday but gradually changes to plain rain.

A brief lull interrupts the storm. Then, a backlash from a coastal storm in the Atlantic Ocean will kick some snow back over Schuylkill County.

Some areas in extreme northeast PA could get more than a foot of snow from this storm.

But in Schuylkill County, we can expect just light snowfall on Sunday night into Monday morning.

NWS predicts a coating of ice will cover Schuylkill County on Sunday before plain rain starts to melt it away. Then, about 1″ of snow will complete the storm.
