Snow headed our way with sub-zero wind chills behind it

Reported by Meteorologist Nate Wardle:

Are you ready for some snow?  Just a day ago I was sitting here, and it looked like we could see a light, nuisance snow for Tuesday.  That has changed due to a major model shift last night.

The timing has not changed with the storm.  We still think it will start between 6-8 a.m.

The heaviest snow arrives during the late morning, and visibility during the periods of heavy snow could be limited.  During the afternoon, the wind starts to kick up, and despite the snow starting to taper off, visibility could once again be limited.

All in all, we are expecting three to five inches for our northern counties, and five to seven inches for those further south, such as Adams, Franklin, York and Lancaster Counties.  That is why those southern counties are under a Winter Storm Warning, while the other counties have a Winter Weather Advisory.

Watches and Warnings are issued based on forecast amounts, with 6 inches getting a Winter Storm Warning, and anything below being a Winter Weather Advisory.  So that is the different in warnings from the National Weather Service.

Just as big of a story, if not more, will be the cold air behind the snow.

We are once again talking about highs in the teens for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and lows for much of the week in the single digits.

Tuesday night through most of the day Wednesday, the wind chills will once again be below zero.

So we have to worry about the snow Tuesday, but the cold on the back end could be just as dangerous, as has been the case several times this year!Snow headed our way with sub-zero wind chills behind it
