Wednesday, February 12, 2014

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for parts of eastern and central Pennsylvania for another storm expected to bring substantial snowfall s down upon the commonwealth.

The warning in effect from late Wednesday night to early Friday morning predicts 6 to 10 inches of snow with a trace of ice for the Lehigh valley, the Philadelphia area and parts of central Pennsylvania. Forecasters say Lancaster, York and Adams counties could get 8 to 12 inches of snow.

The weather service says travel could be significantly affected. And winds of 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph could lead to power outages if snow accumulates on power lines and tree limbs by the time the winds pick up.

PECO reports only about 350 customers still without power after last week's ice storm - most of them in Bucks County.
