As of 6 a.m., nothing is falling in York County or in most parts of Central Pennsylvania at this point. The morning commute shouldn’t be a problem here but the evening might be a bit treacherous. However, if you are heading up to the Northeast or New England, think about changing those plans. Two to three feet of snow are forecasted for some spots, potentially crippling our brothers and sisters to the north and east.
Preparations are underway in Norwalk, CT and all through New England. Early storm predictions are calling for up to 37 inches of snow in Lawrence, MA and possibly a foot to 18 inches in the Big Apple. Over 600 plow trucks are getting ready to deploy in Connecticut alone. Closer to home, the Philadelphia area is predicting more snow than Central Pennsylvania. PennDOT is gearing up for a busy beginning of the weekend. And while some say the snow can be a pain, others plan on using the time to their benefit.
This is setting up to be the first significant snow for New England in about two years. Schools are already canceled across Massachusetts. Forget about travel. The airlines are already canceling about 2,200 flights ahead of a rough weekend of travel.
Several schools in the area are on a 2-hour delay. Check http://tv.trb.com/extras/wpmt/Closings.html.
