Winter Storm Harper is Coming and Could Bring Over 18 Inches of Snow
It now has a name, which makes it super official. This weekend's snowstorm is going to mess up your plans.
Winter Storm Harper will become a major snowstorm before it reaches the Southern Tier. The Northeast will be impacted Friday right on into the weekend.
The exact track of the storm is still up in the air as it is still pivoting through the central and eastern states.
It looks like Harper will impact our area starting Saturday into Sunday.
According to Weather.com Saturday will look like this:
A thin band of sleet and freezing rain is possible in parts of the Ohio Valley eastward into the mid-Atlantic states. Saturday night, some freezing rain may spread into parts of the Lower Hudson Valley and southern New England.
Sunday will see a large portion of the day consumed by Winter Storm Harper.
Weather.com is reporting:
Heavy snow is expected over the interior Northeast from parts of northern Pennsylvania and New York state to western and northern New England.
Weather.com is also saying that actual snow totals are not completely set in stone yet because of multiple factors, but snow is definitely on the way.
Travel impacts stretch throughout the country. Road travel is likely to become difficult, if not impossible, in parts of the Ohio Valley and interior Northeast Saturday into Sunday. Delays can also be expected on major airlines.
