1-4 Inches of Slushy Snow Expected Wednesday

Morning, evening commutes may be affected

winter weather advisory schuylkill county march 9 2022

Winter has at least one last show to put on this season.

Forecasters believe between 1-4 inches of a slushy snow will fall on Schuylkill County Wednesday. National Weather Service has put the area under a Winter Weather Advisory. It lasts from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Some people might find it bizarre to be talking about snow after just enjoying a couple days in a row when the temperature topped out in the 60s and 70s. But this is March in Pennsylvania. This is normal, oddly.

Snow is expected to start in the early morning hours on Wednesday. The heaviest snow will fall between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. It could make for tricky travel during the morning and evening commutes. But the temperature is expected to get above freezing at some point on Wednesday, so that’ll introduce rain into the equation, making for a potential sloppy mess on the roads. The rain may cause much of the snow to melt quickly.

Higher elevations are likely to see the highest snow totals from this late-winter storm.

The weather gets a little more seasonal the rest of the week. Highs on Thursday and Friday will hit near 50. Colder weather moves in for the weekend. The high on Saturday is expected to be near 40 but on Sunday, it’ll only top out near the freezing mark.
