A Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 5 a.m. Saturday morning until 4 a.m. Sunday. The National Weather Service said accumulations of “6 inches or more are possible over all of Central Pennsylvania with amounts possibly exceeding 8 inches over the central and eastern mountains.”

The NWS says snow will start after midnight tonight and will be the heaviest during the afternoon and evening hours. There is the possibility of heavy snow throughout the day, possibly changing to sleet or freezing rain across the lower Susquehanna Valley.
