Forecasters warn of snow, rain, ice, possible flooding

January 19, 2019

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Forecasters say a winter storm is spreading snow across Pennsylvania and could bring a foot or more to northern areas.

The National Weather Service expects accumulations of 12 inches or more north of Interstate 80. Snow accumulations are expected to be lower to the south, where a transition to a wintry mix and then rain is expected and ice accumulation of up to a quarter of an inch is possible.

Forecasters say the threat of flooding has increased for the I-95 corridor, where a flood watch is in effect.

And they warn of dangerously cold wind chills in some areas Sunday night into Monday.

Governor Tom Wolf earlier declared a state of emergency, and officials announced speed restrictions and a ban on commercial traffic on most interstates and the turnpike.
