    Harrisburg: Storm With Snow, Ice Takes Aim Sunday

    By By Alex Sosnowski, expert senior meteorologist.

    A storm arriving on Sunday has the potential to bring more snow, ice and travel problems to the Harrisburg area.

    While a large amount of snow is not expected, the area could receive its first inch or two of snow of the season.

    More of a concern is the potential for an extended period of ice.


    Should much of that ice occur locally in the from of freezing rain, other than sleet, there could be treacherous driving conditions and power outages over south central Pennsylvania.

    The worst conditions in terms of damage and disruptions from an ice buildup will be over the I-81 corridor reaching from the I-77 junction in Virginia northeastward to around Harrisburg, Pa. Travel may still be hazardous in these areas into Monday morning rush hour.

    Warmer air is forecast to move in during the storm Sunday evening through Monday, causing a changeover to a wintry mix, then rain from the coast to inland areas in the mid-Atlantic

    There may be flight delays Sunday afternoon through Monday due to snow at first, then ice, followed by plain rain and low ceilings later.
