    Harrisburg to be Grazed by Major Snowstorm

    A storm that will bring major disruptions of travel and daily activities to much of the nation will hit Harrisburg, Pa., with some snow Monday morning.

    The greatest accumulation from the storm will occur south of the Mason-Dixon Line, where over 6 inches of snow is forecast. However, amounts will be lower across much of the Lower Susquehanna Valley, with 1 to as much as 3 inches.

    Lengthy flight delays and many cancellations are expected Monday, since it will move into the mid-Atlantic today and impact major hubs.

    Snowfall rates can reach or surpass 2 inches per hour in some locations south of the Maryland border. Such intense snowfall can overwhelm shoveling and plowing operations, as well as strand motorists.

    Motorists heading along the Turnpike Monday morning and especially those heading southward along I-81 into Northern Virginia and I-83 into Maryland should prepare for difficult travel.

    More cold weather will follow the storm Monday night and Tuesday.
