Snow, ice, freezing rain coats Central PA

snow covered roadAnother bout of wintry weather is coating Central Pennsylvania causing icy slick conditions, accidents and school delays.

The snow has been falling in York County since about 5:45 a.m. and it is accumulating on the side of the roads and the grassy areas.  To this point, most of the roads are in pretty good shape.  Back roads and side roads will be slippery so be aware when you head out the door.

We expect that this snow will change over to ice and eventually rain as the day moves along.  Many school districts are delaying the opening of school because of the weather.

PennDOT in York County has been working to treat the roads since 2 a.m.  Fifty-five state trucks have been throwing salt and sand on the main roads to make sure the morning commute is smooth.  Up to this point, there have been no major problems.

“Fifty-five trucks out since 2 a.m. going over the roads and making sure the roads stay clear. The main goal is to keep everything passable, keep everything wet until it warms up and changes over to rain,” said Chris Leiphart of PennDOT York County.
