A late-winter storm may bring a mix of precipitation appropriate for the season. It just probably won’t be a lot of whatever falls.
National Weather Service predicts between 1-3 inches of snow may fall on Schuylkill County from Thursday evening into Friday morning. Additionally, the storm could bring a mix of sleet, freezing rain, and plain rain.
The storm is forecast to start as snow, sometime around 8 p.m. Thursday. Schuylkill County may see a switch to freezing rain overnight, maybe around 2 a.m. Friday. Until about 8 a.m. Friday, we could see a mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow.
Most of whatever snow falls on the area will happen Thursday, according to the latest NWS forecast (early Wednesday morning).
As the temperature slowly rises above freezing on Friday, there’s a chance of rain and snow.
The storm should be out of the area by late-morning or the early afternoon on Friday.
There’s an expected high temperature of 32 on Thursday and a nighttime low of 28 degrees. The forecast high temp on Friday is 38 degrees.
