Winter Storm Watch Issued for Schuylkill County

The weather service has issued a winter weather advisory for most of Tuesday through Wednesday morning for parts of western Texas, much of Oklahoma and into northwestern Arkansas.

A Winter Storm Warning means there will be snow covered roads and limited visibilities. With many people off today and schools closed, the effects of this particular snow will be less pronounced. Be sure to use caution while driving and slow down.

Snow began early Monday morning and fell steadily across MA through the day, coating southern New England with an expected accumulation of 3-6 inches.

Snowfall totals across south central Wisconsin are approaching 5-6 inches in some locations.

-6 7 p.m. Wednesday for northwestern Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem counties in southwestern New Jersey. The winter weather will move from south to north. While we're not under an advisory during the time that I'm writing this, I fully expect us to be involved in something before the day's end.

Wintry precipitation is also possible Tuesday evening into Wednesday for parts of the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic. An icy mix begins to work in close to noon, and it continues to spread through the afternoon.

All the while a major southern storm is developing in the Mississippi Valley, this one feeding on 2 seams of moisture, one from the Gulf and second potent stream coming from the Pacific ocean a few thousand miles away.

Tuesday night, meteorologists predict scattered snow showers.

Quick, heavy burst of snow before changing to sleet.

TUESDAY: More sun than clouds.

Wednesday: Partly sunny and chilly.

It will only be a respite because another storm system will be rolling in Thursday (Feb. 21) and continuing through Saturday (Feb. 23) promising more snow. We will reach a high in the low 30s with a mostly cloudy afternoon.
