Winter storm will hit heaviest in southern, Pa.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Much of southern Pennsylvania can expect its biggest storm this winter, with up to a foot of snow forecast for hilly areas between Harrisburg and Pittsburgh.

The National Weather Service in State College said snowfall will move west to east, beginning in western Pennsylvania after sunset today and ending in eastern Pennsylvania after noon Wednesday.

Meteorologist Aaron Tyburski says the snowfall will taper off quickly to the north, with less than an inch north of Interstate 80. Philadelphia can expect two to three inches, while Pittsburgh can expect six to eight inches. The morning commute will be tricky, with snow falling at about an inch per hour in some areas.

Tyburski says it’s normal for Pennsylvania to get a March snowstorm and he notes the snow will melt relatively quickly.
