HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — A winter storm warning will be in effect for central Pennsylvania this weekend as forecasters expect the first major nor'easter of the season to bring 5 to 8 inches of snow along with freezing temperatures and slippery roadways.
The National Weather Service says the warning will be in effect from 7 p.m. Friday to 1 p.m. Saturday for a wide area between Gettysburg and Johnstown, stretching from the Maryland border to just south of State College and Williamsport.
A winter weather advisory will be in effect for other parts of central and eastern Pennsylvania. Forecasters expect 3 to 5 inches in Altoona and 2 to 4 inches in the Philadelphia area.
Some communities were banning street parking in anticipation of the storm and Philadelphia suburbs were preparing emergency warming shelters.
