Motorists are advised to stay alert for possible heavy snow squalls today, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

Heave squalls can quickly coat roadways in snow and cause near-whiteout conditions, virtually eliminating drivers’ visibility, PennDOT cautions.

A PennDOT news release states: “Sudden and heavy snow squalls are one of the biggest challenges that motorists, including PennDOT plow truck drivers, face during the winter; and motorists need to be alert for sudden squalls that can quickly cause roads to become snow covered.”
