NWS: ‘Plowable snow’ expected from storm

Area residents can expect more winter weather today as another storm system moves into the region.

Blair County is under a winter storm watch and could see more than 6 inches of snow, said National Weather Service forecaster Kevin Fitzgerald, but it is on the fringe of the storm, so its impact may be less. Cambria and Centre counties are under the same designation.

“I would expect plowable snow – that’s quite likely,” he said. “It’s just a matter of how much.”

Bedford County, though, is under a winter storm warning, Fitzgerald said, with possible snow fall between 7 and 10 inches.

Snow will begin to fall early this morning and will continue through the day, he said,

before tapering off in the evening.

Because it is on the edge of the storm, Blair County residents would likely see periods of heavy snow that drop off quickly, he said.

Fitzgerald said the worst of the storm will be over by Friday, though it will be windy.

“Friday morning it will kind of breezy out, so there could be some areas of drifting

tomorrow during the day,” Fitzgerald said.
