Snowfall will be heaviest in Schuylkill County between 5 a.m. and noon. Light snow is possible during the afternoon hours.

Strong Winds

In addition to the heavy snowfall, we’ll also experience some pretty strong sustained wind along with intense wind gusts. Sustained winds through the storm could top out at 25 mph. Gusts through the day could hit 40-50 mph.

The strong wind will create blowing snow situations and that’s likely to make travel extremely difficult on Saturday.
