Super Bowl Sunday: How much snow?

A fast-moving storm will bring snow to Central Pennsylvania on Super Bowl Sunday, the National Weather Service says.

How much snow?

While forecasters differ, their predictions come in at around 2 to 4 inches for the Lock Haven, State College and Williamsport regions, with pockets of heavier snow at higher elevations.

The snow is not expected to start until after midnight Saturday.

The heaviest snow will supposedly fall Sunday morning through the evening before tapering off.

Of course, Super Bowl Sunday festivities for many in our area likely will begin amid the heaviest snowfall rate, so forecasters and emergency officials alike are urging caution on the roads before and after the game.

The Philadelphia Eagles take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

Kick off is at 6:30 p.m. (EST) Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn.

Pre-game festivities will begin airing much earlier.

The heaviest snow is forecast from northeastern Pennsylvania to northern New England, according to AccuWeather.com.

Since part of the storm center will track over the eastern Great Lakes, a swath of moderate to heavy snowfall is also likely to be centered over part of the lower Peninsula of Michigan and southern Ontario. As a secondary storm forms near the coast, a stripe of moderate to heavy snow is likely to develop near the Pocono and Catskill mountains and on to the northeast.

A high of 37 degrees is forecast for Sunday, with a low of 22.

That said, temperatures today should hover around 30 under partly sunny skies.

Skies will begin clouding up in late afternoon as the Sunday storm approaches.

Monday also will bring a chance of snow with a high of 29 and a low of 14.

Forecasters are also keeping an eye on computer models showing another storm will approach for Tuesday and Wednesday.
