UPDATE: NWS Increases Watch to Winter Storm Warning for Weekend

March 11, 2022

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – The National Weather Service in State College has increased the Winter Storm Watch issued for Warren County to a Winter Storm Warning, beginning at 7 p.m. Friday.

The warning runs until 7 p.m. Saturday and has been extended to McKean, Elk and Cameron Counties. Heavy snow with accumulations of five to seven inches and wind gusts up to 45 mph are expected.

“Rain will arrive in the late afternoon and evening hours, and become snow before midnight,” the NWS said. “The snow will be heaviest overnight, but lighter snow will continue for the rest of the day on Saturday.”

The hazardous conditions could make travel difficult as blowing snow reduces visibility and gusty winds could bring branches down across roadways.

“The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission strongly encourage motorists to heed all travel restrictions and delay unnecessary travel as significant weather conditions will make travel very hazardous,” the advisory said.
