PennDOT: upcoming storm will be easier to deal with

Posted: Updated:

The upcoming snowstorm should be easier to deal with than the one earlier this week, said PennDOT spokeswoman Fritzi Schreffler.

abc27 meteorologists are predicting that central Pennsylvania will receive two to five inches of snow Saturday. This storm is expected to come without the freezing rain that fell on Wednesday, which should make it easier for PennDOT to keep the roads clear.

"This should be an easier storm for us to deal with because we aren't looking at freezing rain, just snow," Schreffler said.

Schreffler said counties that saw a lot of rain earlier in the week may pre treat roads before Saturday. However, she said Dauphin and Cumberland counties will not pre treat the roads since there is enough residual chemicals leftover from earlier this week. 

But once the Saturday storm hits, Schreffler said all crews will be ready.

"Once the storm starts, we'll be on full call-out," Schreffler said in an email.
