Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service State College PA
455 PM EST Sat Jan 19 2019

A winter storm is spreading snow across Pennsylvania this 
evening. As the evening progresses, snow will transition to a 
wintry mix across southern Pennsylvania. Eventually, portions of 
southern Pennsylvania will see a transition to plain rain
overnight, as temperatures there rise just above freezing.

Total snow accumulation of 12 inches or more is expected north of
Interstate 80. Snow accumulations will be lower farther to the 
south, where the changeover to a wintry mix and possibly rain is 
expected. Ice accumulation of up to a quarter of an inch is 
possible across parts of southern Pennsylvania. Expect significant
disruptions to travel statewide overnight.

The steady snow, rain and ice will come to an end Sunday morning,
although snow showers will persist across northern and western 
Pennsylvania, as frigid arctic air surges into the region on gusty
northwest winds. Gusty winds may also contribute to blowing and 
drifting snow on Sunday, especially across northern Pennsylvania 
where the snow will not be topped with a layer of ice.

Dangerously cold wind chills of 10 to 25 degrees below zero are 
in store Sunday night into Monday.
