Short storm to dump more snow
LOCK HAVEN — Winter isn’t over yet.
A quick-hitting winter storm will make an appearance today in Clinton and Centre counties, according to AccuWeather. When it’s all said and done, look for one to three inches of the white stuff on the ground. The snowstorm was expected to arrive around 7 or 8 a.m., according to AccuWeather meteorologist Matthew Greene.
“This will be a quick-hitter,” Greene said. “The band will move across the area pretty quickly, but it will give us around an inch an hour while it’s in the area.”
However, because it will be a fast-moving storm, Greene said that Clinton and Centre counties likely won’t see more than three inches of snow.
“It will move out, but there will be some snow showers and even rain behind it,” Greene said.
Today’s high will climb to 37. Tonight’s low will drop to 31. The low temperature could cause some problems for those traveling tonight.
“Some of the standing water and slushy areas could freeze,” Greene said. “It’s something to keep an eye on.”
Once the storm moves out, Greene said, that will likely be the last of the snow — at least for now.
“There’s really no precipitation in the forecast after (Monday),” Greene said.
By mid-week, there will be a significant warm up. On Wednesday, look for temperatures to climb all the into the low 50s. Greene said Wednesday will be a “really nice day.”
A significant amount of snow could melt on Wednesday.
Wednesday’s high will be an aberration, though. Temperatures will be back in the 30s on Thursday and Friday. The high both days will be 38.
A little warm up is in the cards for the weekend as Saturday’s high will climb to 47.
