Snow Possible in Schuylkill County By End of Week

When it starts and how much we’ll get remains a mystery.

snow forecast for schuylkill county friday

Snow is in the forecast in Schuylkill County by the end of this week.

When it will start and how much we’ll get remains very uncertain.

Forecasts have been all over the place at this point but through Monday, each of the popular weather models shows snow in the area by Friday.

Snow Likely on Friday in Schuylkill County

Based on the latest National Weather Service forecast, snow is expected to start Thursday night, some time after 8 p.m. That same forecast suggests snow will come to an end Friday morning.

Of course, that’s a Monday forecast and the storm isn’t expected here for a few days. These forecasts often change. In fact, it changed several times on Monday.

“All medium range guidance indicates a strengthening surface low will lift up to the Mid-Atlantic coast late Thursday into Friday in response to a deepening upstream trough over the Midwest,” NWS forecasters say Monday night.

They also say the chance of a significant snowstorm at this point is low.

But that doesn’t mean no snow.

On Monday night, NWS isn’t giving projected snow totals for this late-week storm. Accuweather suggests Schuylkill County could see anywhere between 3-6 inches of snow from the first winter blast of 2022. The Weather Channel currently forecasts only about half that, 1-3 inches.

We checked the latest weather models to see how much snow the American and Euros are showing for this potential storm.

The Euro shows more snow than the American model. Here’s the latest run we saw on Monday night:

You can see that shows about 3 inches of snow over much of Schuylkill County.

But the story with the American model tells a different story. Even as we were putting this post together, this model changed.

Now, it’s snowing less than an inch of snow over the area.

Both of these images show cumulative snowfalls through mid-day Friday, including the big snowstorm that hit the South on Monday.

We’ll follow this story through the week. For now, it doesn’t look like much need for panic.
