    Snowy Tuesday for Central Appalachians

    A weak and fast-moving, but sufficient storm will spread a swath of accumulating snow over portions of West Virginia, western and northern Maryland and central and southeastern Pennsylvania today.

    From 1 to 3 inches of snow and a bit of rain is forecast for most grassy and elevated surfaces. A few spots can get a bit more.

    However, since the snow began when road surface temperatures were chilly there can be slippery and slushy spots, especially on bridges and in areas that are shaded from the sun on a clear day.

    People should expect travel delays Tuesday. Motorists are advised to watch for icy spots, since some roads may not have been treated. (Photos.com image)

    The snow will end from west to east across the central Appalachians and eastern Pennsylvania during the afternoon and early evening.

    Untreated areas made wet by the snow can become icy during the evening as the sky clears and temperatures slip below freezing.

    Like all storms, this one will have a northern and western edge. No accumulating snow is forecast over northern Ohio, northwestern Pennsylvania and along much of the southern tier of New York.
