(WTAJ) – A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 7pm this evening for Elk, Cameron, Clearfield, Cambria, and Somerset counties. A Winter Weather Advisory kicks in for Cambria and Somerset counties at 7pm and lasts until 4am Tuesday. The other threat for our region is strong winds and blowing snow. There is a wind advisory until 7pm tonight for Blair, Centre, and Bedford Counties eastward. Some of the wind gusts will be over 40mph. Strong winds are also possible in areas outside of the advisory.
We’ll continue to have scattered flurries and snow showers. There will be a fresh covering to an inch in places near and east of I-99 and there will be a few inches in places farther to the west.
Traveling will continue to be dangerous even where the snow stops, because the wind will lead to snowfall blowing back onto the roadways.
Many locations have picked up over a half a foot of snowfall. Total accumulations from this storm by the end of the day will be 6-9″ east of I-99, 9-12″ to the west. There will be slightly more in the Laurel Highlands where snow showers will linger into Tuesday
