The major snowstorm once predicted for Super Bowl Sunday in Schuylkill County likely won’t materialize. In fact, this one may not even make the playoffs.

The latest weather model runs and forecasts suggest Schuylkill County may only see 1-2 inches of snow from the fast-moving storm today. If you blink, you may even miss the snow entirely.

There is still a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for Schuylkill County on Sunday, despite the lower snow totals expected. National Weather Service, in its advisory notice, believes the area is still likely to receiver 2-4 inches of snow.  The advisory is now in effect from 3 a.m. until 3 p.m. Sunday.

But according to the map below, it appears the snow we do get here will be on the lower end of that 2-4 inches range.

The map below shows the amount of snow expected to fall between now and Monday evening. You can see that the further east you travel in Schuylkill County, the more snow you’ll see.

Totals should be higher south and east of Interstate 81.

Here are the National Weather Service estimates from today’s storm:
