Alberta Clipper Expected to Bring 3 to 6 Inches of Snow with Sleet and Rain Late Sunday into Monday for Schuylkill County

The Alberta Clipper that's crossing the United States is expected to bring Schuylkill County some snow late Sunday into Monday.

The storm that was expected to drop close to a foot of snow in early forecasts has been downgraded but that doesn't mean it won't bring us any snow.

After a the extremely cold temperatures begin to warm back up into the 20's the snow will move in around 5:00pm on Sunday afternoon in the southern parts of the county.

As the storm progresses, temperatures will continue to warm up into the 30's around Midnight on Monday morning and that snow will switch to sleet then rain.

Overnight temperatures are expected to stay above freezing keeping the precipitation all rain until daybreak when temperatures will drop again and precipitation will turn back to all snow by lunchtime.

As of Saturday morning's forecasts, the National Weather Service is saying Schuylkill County could see anywhere from 3-6 inches of snow during the storm.  Travel will definitely be tricky Sunday evening and Monday morning.  As of 11:00am, Saturday, there have been no advisories or watches issued for the county.

PennDOT has already announced they expect to lower speed limits and impose other restricts on the Interstate during the storm.

Don't expected any school delays since the kids are off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

We are keeping an eye on the storm and will update you as it moves closer and if any advisories are issued.

UPDATE:  Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Schuylkill County
