Snow and Ice Expected through Tuesday Afternoon

Schuylkill County should expected some slippery conditions starting Monday and lasting through Tuesday afternoon.

The current weather trend for Pennsylvania will continue Monday and Tuesday with another round of wintry weather starting midday Monday.

The National Weather Service changed their Winter Storm Watch for Schuylkill County to a Winter Weather Advisory early Monday but also changed the time from of the alert.  The advisory began Monday at 7:00am and will run to 1:00pm, Tuesday.

Even though the alert was sort of a downgrade for the NWS's alert system, it doesn't mean it shouldn't be ignored or that the storm was a bust.

Schuylkill County has the chance to see some snow showers around lunchtime on Monday.  The commute home might get tricky with a mix of wintry precipitation moving in with rain, sleet, and freezing rain starting around 4:00pm.

The full Winter Weather Advisory from the NWS that was posted at 4:30am, Monday, is listed below.
