Snow begins falling in latest winter storm

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania is bracing for a storm that could dump up to nine or 10 inches of snow in the Pocono Mountains and northwestern Pennsylvania, followed by a blast of dangerously frigid air that will send wind chills below zero.

Snow started falling before dawn Thursday morning in the I-80 corridor in northern Pennsylvania. The National Weather Service has posted a winter storm warning for eastern Pennsylvania, where it says snowfall will be heaviest Thursday evening before tapering off Friday morning.

The weather service says 3 to 7 inches will fall in the Philadelphia area and 6 to 8 farther north. Western and central Pennsylvania could see anywhere from 2 to 7 inches.

PennDOT says it's put salt-spreading trucks on standby and has sprayed salt brine on major expressways and highways.
