(CBS 21 STEVE KNIGHT) Today is a CBS 21 WEATHER WARN DAY because of a major snow storm heading our way. The snow will begin Mid-Day and rapidly intensify by this evening.
Heavy snow will continue to fall tonight and into the overnight hours before wrapping up around daybreak tomorrow. Snow will accumulate 8-12 inches over most of Central PA. Some locally heavier amounts of more than a foot are possible, with slightly smaller amounts to the south because of some warmer air working in changing the snow to sleet. This is a significant snowstorm and you should prepare now to be safe at home through the event and most of Thursday.
Thursday will be breezy and Cold as we're digging out. So the snow is not going away quickly. This will be the biggest snowstorm in 2 years! CBS 21 First Warning Weather has declared a WEATHER WARN DAY to get you ready.
Seasonably cold December weather will stick around the rest of this week with highs returning to the low 40's by next week.
