National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the first part of Sunday here in Schuylkill County.

According to information released early Saturday morning, NWS predicts between 2-4 inches of snow will fall on Schuylkill County from between 1 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 7.

Snowfall, although light by comparison to the storm earlier this week, can still cause tricky travel conditions. Heaviest snowfall will happen along and southeast of the Interstate 81 corridor.

Snow on Sunday to Bring 2-4 Inches to Schuylkill County

Earlier this week, rumors of another major snowstorm started circulating. However, it appears that the forecast didn’t pan out quite that way but we can still expect some wintry weather here to wrap up the weekend.

Instead of us getting the heaviest of the snowfall, right now the expected track of this coastal storm should dump heavier amounts of snow in the Philadelphia area, where a Winter Storm Warning is already in effect.

Here’s a look at the current watches, warnings, and advisories in effect:
