Snowstorm will hit region at noon, forecaster says

JOHNSTOWN — A storm is expected to blanket the region today and Saturday with 4 to 9 inches of snow.

Brian Edwards, a meteorologist with AccuWeather in State College, said the snow should arrive around noon today.

“It will fall steadily through much of the day,” he said.

Snow is expected to accumulate between 3 and 6 inches by 7 or 8 tonight and then taper off to flurries, Edwards said.

A northwest wind behind the storm will produce another 1 to 3 inches of lake-effect snow late today and Saturday, he said.

The snow is expected to stop by Saturday night.

It will remain cold today with the mercury reaching

18 degrees, he said. But it won’t be quite as cold over­night as it has been, with the temperature falling to 12 degrees.

By comparison, the low on Thursday was 5 degrees and Wednesday it was zero, Edwards said. Both readings were taken at Greater Johns­town-Cambria County Airport in Richland Township.

Saturday’s high should reach 20 degrees. It will be breezy, so there will be some drifting of snow, Edwards said.

The forecast for Sunday is for partly sunny skies, a high of 22 degrees and an over­night low of 17 degrees.

“It gets a little tricky late Sunday into Monday, with another storm approaching the area,” Edwards said.

“This storm has milder air with it, so we are looking for the potential of a wintry mix late Sunday into Monday.”

The mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain should change to rain during the day Monday, when the temperature will rise to 36 degrees, Edwards said.

“Mild air sticks around into Tuesday,” he said, adding that there will be plenty of clouds and a high in the mid-40s.

Wednesday is expected to start off mild with a high of

50 degrees. Then a cold front will arrive, bringing sharply colder temperatures for the remainder of the week, Ed­wards said. The temperatures should not be as severe as those this week, he said.
