Pennsylvania gets ready for some winter weather

STATE COLLEGE —

Snow is falling in parts of western and central Pennsylvania, and the eastern half of the state is preparing for what forecasters are describing as a minor storm.

Predictions call for 1 to 3 inches across much of Pennsylvania through Saturday morning.

Snow is falling steadily in Pittsburgh and should reach Philadelphia and Scranton by mid- to late-afternoon Friday.

Hundreds of schools statewide announced early dismissals, while at least one judge in Pittsburgh is planning to send jurors home early.

The flakes cap a week of frigid temperatures. In northeastern Pennsylvania, authorities say a man has been found dead in his unheated home.

The Pocono Record reports 71-year-old Walter Elwine was found Thursday. Officials say his wood-burning stove hadn't been used recently. An autopsy is planned.
