Several inches of snow will accumulate before mixing with sleet and changing to freezing rain Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night.

A winter storm watch will take effect at 6 a.m. Tuesday and last through 7 a.m. Wednesday.

The statement notes that a winter storm with significant snow, freezing rain and strong winds is possible for Tuesday, Feb. 12. Warm, humid air blowing in from the south may give us enough instability (fuel) for some storms and some locally heavy rainfall late Monday into Tuesday morning. Temperatures tonight drop into the upper 20s leaving a good 10:1 snowfall ratio.

The areas in white and light blue will be the first to see the transition from snow to a mix.

We will start the day with mostly sunny skies early in the morning, but it will turn cloudy. More of the precipitation will fall as rain and sleet instead of snow. "This round of snow will bring some substantial snowfall accumulations to the area with our southern counties (Franklin, Adams, York and Lancaster) picking up 2-4" of snow. Highs in the upper 30s. Some showers also develop Sunday, but our next best chance of rain comes between Monday and Tuesday of next week. Besides Wednesday and later next weekend, highs will be staying in the 40s and 50s with a few brief shots of colder air.
