...AN AREA OF HEAVY SNOW WILL AFFECT PARTS OF PERRY...YORK...
LANCASTER...ADAMS...FRANKLIN...CUMBERLAND...LEBANON...AND DAUPHIN
COUNTIES...

HAZARDS...An area of heavy snow which can rapidly reduce visibility
to less than a quarter of a mile. This area of heavy snow is
producing extremely heavy snow at the rate of 1 to 2 inches per hour.

LOCATION AND MOVEMENT...At 536 PM EST, an area of heavy snow was
covering much of the lower Susquehanna Valley. The area of snow is
moving very little, but an edge to the heavier snow is moving
through the south-central mountains. That should decrease the
intensity of the snow from west to east over the next 2 hours.
However, locations southeast of Harrisburg could have the snow
intensify before tapering off later this evening.

SAFETY INFO...Use extra caution if you must travel into or through
this area of heavy snow. Rapid changes in visibility and potentially
slick roads are likely to lead to accidents. Consider delaying
travel until this area of heavy snow diminishes or moves to the east.
