Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Central Pennsylvania
National Weather Service State College PA
435 AM EST Wed Dec 13 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Bands of lake effect and upslope snow will persist this morning
across the Northwest Mountains and Laurel Highlands. A fast moving
and rather potent clipper system will move out of the Ohio Valley
late today and cross southern Pennsylvania tonight accompanied by a
periods of steady light to moderate snow.

Up to an additional few inches of snow will occur this morning
in the more persistent localized snow bands across the Alleghenies
of Western Pennsylvania, and another 2 to 4 inches of snow is
expected across the Western mountains tonight and early Thursday,
with 1 to 3 inches across the Central Mountains, and around
an inch in the Lower Susquehanna Valley.

Cold but mainly dry conditions will follow for the bulk of Thursday
into early Friday under a weak ridge of high pressure, followed by
some periods of light snow or snow showers Friday afternoon through
Saturday morning.
