Nor'Easter arrives Wednesday night

Posted: Updated:

Winter Storm Warnings are scattered across many southern states tonight as they gear up for a combination of snow and ice for Wednesday. The developing Nor'Easter is taking shape in the Gulf and lifting north. We'll have another 24 hours before the storm begins to affect the Midstate.

After a near-record cold morning on Wednesday, clouds will increase Wednesday afternoon from the approaching storm. We expect the snow to push over the Maryland/Pennsylvania border around Midnight Wednesday night. Snow will be steady overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. Most of our snow accumulation will occur during the morning hours through noon Thursday.

The track of the Nor'Easter is trending a little farther west, which will allow warmer air to intrude and produce a period of sleet for several hours Thursday afternoon and evening. Adams, Dauphin, Lebanon, Lancaster and York counties are likely to experience a period of sleet late Thursday. The storm wraps up Thursday evening, leaving us with another night of busy snow plows and shovels.

Our snowfall potential map can be viewed on our website, abc27.3 channel, and on facebook and twitter.
