Pennsylvania snowfall totals: How much fell in your area?
Snow continued to fall Friday morning as a quick-moving storm rolled across Pennsylvania, canceling in-person school and making the roads treacherous. Authorities warned that quickly falling snow and high winds could make travel conditions dangerous, and advised motorists to delay travel plans if possible.
The National Weather Service said snow could fall as quickly as 1 to 2 inches per hour, and expected varying totals across the state.
The heaviest snowfall was predicted in the northwest corner of the state, with Erie seeing up to 10 inches from lake effect snow, and similar amounts possible in southwest Pennsylvania.
AccuWeather senior meteorologist Joe Lundberg said a storm targeting much of the East should develop into the first bomb cyclone of 2022. A bomb cyclone is defined as a storm whose central pressure plummets 24 millibars in 24 hours.
