How much snow fell during central Pa.’s first storm of 2022?
A winter storm warning expired at 6 a.m. Friday, but roads could remain slippery later Friday morning, forecasters said.
Central Pennsylvanians are waking up to several inches of snow thanks to the first major storm of the year.
The bulk of the snow has stopped falling as of 6 a.m.; however, the National Weather Service said roads could remain slippery throughout the morning in places where snow has not yet been cleared.
At most, forecasters said Adams County received 3.5 inches of snow; Cumberland County had 6.6 inches; Dauphin County had 3 inches; Lancaster County had 1.5 inches and York County had 7 inches.
York County’s 7 inches of snow far exceeded forecasters’ original expectations of up to 3 inches across the midstate.
PennDOT speed restrictions remain in place as of 6 a.m. The agency urged drivers to drop their speed to 45 mph on Interstates 81, 83 and 283; as well as Routes 15, 30, 283, 322 and 581. Commercial vehicles must stay in the right lane while the speed restriction is in place on these roads.
