Baby, it’s Cold Outside! Winter weather advisory to hit Tristate Area tonight

14 December 2022- The first real storm of the ’22-23 season looks set to hit South Central Pennsylvania, Western Maryland, and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia tonight with snow, wintery mix and ice all in the cards. With snow and ice both likely to happen, it is important to stay prepared.

Experts at the Fulton County Emergency Management Agency say that “a wintry mix will overspread the area late tonight into Thursday, impacting the Thursday morning commute. The wintry mix will transition to accumulating snow over the central and northern mountains by midday, while precipitation turns to plain rain over the Lower Susquehanna Valley by evening.”

News Talk 1037FM Meteorologist Pat Pagano says much the same, indicating that our area looks likely to get hit a little later than some, with the first precipitation set to hit around 2am. That wintery mix looks set to transition to ice and snow in some higher elevations. Maps, models, and figures from the national weather service are below, as is Pagano’s full extended storm forecast.
