Before we get into the details about Tuesday Evening into Wednesday, a disturbance is still projected to move through the state Tonight and into Tomorrow Morning bringing with it a mix of rain and snow.

As for the bigger storm potential, we are tracking a Winter Storm set to begin Tuesday Evening and lasting through Wednesday Morning. A low pressure system will develop in the South and track its way Northward before transferring its energy into a coastal low. Over the last 36-48 hours, guidance has been steadily trending colder and colder for this system. While this still won’t be an all snow event for most of us, this will lead to a longer duration of snow versus rain for many locations.
For a visual on this, below is the Canadian Model valid 7 PM Tuesday Evening.
The further North you are in PA and the higher your elevation is will increase your chances of receiving accumulating snowfall. Many low elevated valleys will receive a slushy mix or just a cold rain.
It is projected as this storm wraps up and the precipitation weakens, most locations end in the form of light rain.
Timing: Tuesday Evening into Wednesday Morning
MAP FORECAST FOR WINTER STORM TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY
Area A: 4 to 6 inches of heavy wet snow is possible, ending as a brief period of drizzle. Isolated power outages would be possible in these areas as the snow would weigh on power lines and tree limbs.
