A quick-moving winter storm system is expected to pass by Schuylkill County on Wednesday night into Thursday. A light accumulation of snow is possible.
But like most winter storms these days, just how much snow will fall on Schuylkill County remains a mystery, less than 24 hours out from the storm’s arrival.
Light Snow Possible in Schuylkill County Wednesday Night
The trending forecast for later tonight into Thursday morning is for Schuylkill County to get about 1 inch of snow from this system.
National Weather Service forecasters in State College believe, however, there’s a greater chance for that inch of snow in southeastern Pennsylvania and not as far north as Schuylkill County. But they’re not ruling out the possibility.
Accuweather is reporting the same, predicting between a coating to an inch of snow.
The Weather Channel is not as ambitious with its snowfall total for Schuylkill County. They’ve got us getting a chance of rain and snow showers later Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
Here’s a look at the current GFS model when we went live with this article. This shows precipitation type and timing:
Any snow on Wednesday night and Thursday morning would add to the snow pack created by the first significant winter storm of this season on Sunday night. Schuylkill County received up to 4 inches of snow with that storm.
The most, according to National Weather Service, was reported in Auburn with 4.2 inches of snow.
