Winter’s Last Gasp? Snow on Tuesday Could Be Disruptive in Schuylkill County

How much snow will we get?

It seems the winter that never really was isn’t ready to go away just yet.

National Weather Service has issued yet another Winter Weather Advisory for Schuylkill County.

The Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect at 6 p.m. Monday and extends until 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 14.

Right now, NWS predicts between 3-5 inches of snow for Schuylkill County. Some more northerly locations could see as much as 7 inches of snow from this storm.

Rain, however, could mix in with the snow at times and reduce those snowfall accumulations.

On Tuesday, we can expect mostly rain here in Schuylkill County, specifically in Pottsville.

Rain will begin mixing with snow after midnight Tuesday with all snow developing around 3 a.m. It’s expected to snow from that point until early afternoon Tuesday.

The forecast for snow in Pottsville is slightly less than NWS generally predicts for Schuylkill County. NWS is predicting between 2-4 inches in Pottsville.

Regardless of the snowfall totals, it’ll be a windy day Tuesday. Overnight gusts could reach 25 mph and they’ll get stronger as the day progresses. Maximum wind gusts on Tuesday night could clock in at 40 mph.

After the snow moves out, much of the wintry feeling here will go with it. Temperatures are expected to climb back into the 50s starting on Thursday through Saturday.
