1-3″ of Snow Expected in Schuylkill County Into Friday

Still enough to cause headaches on the roads.

A minor but potentially disruptive snowstorm will impact Schuylkill County starting later tonight and into Friday.

Forecasters and weather models agree that between 1-3 inches of snow will fall on the area by the time the storm exits.

While it’s not the bigger storm some may have anticipated earlier this week, that much snow has proven to cause headaches for emergency personnel in the past.

Prior to the snow, we’ll get a brisk, cold day here in the coal region. Clouds will start building throughout the day and the high temperature is expected to top out at about 31 degrees.

A steady 6-11 mph wind could be accompanied with gusts up to 21 mph.

Thursday’s low is expected to dip to 25, so there’s no chance of any precipitation being anything other than snow with this brief storm.

Even colder air comes in behind the storm with just 1 day from Friday into next Wednesday expected to get over the freezing mark. Overnight lows next Monday and Tuesday are forecast to drop to 13 degrees.

A small wintry mix is forecast for Schuylkill County on Sunday morning, prior to 1 p.m.
