How much depends on which model you believe. All of the models upped the snow totals over the past 24 hours but some are going crazy with amounts.
The central part of Pennsylvania will get hammered for sure, but Kristin Emery says the tricky question is where the cutoff line will be between 4 to 7 inches and 7 inches-plus in western Pennsylvania.
The Laurels and Ridges will see those higher amounts and a general 4 to 7 inches is fitting across our area, with most of us looking at 3 to 6 inches a bit farther west.
All of this will wrap up around midnight tomorrow and Thursday will bring some clearing with some warmer temperatures into the weekend.MORE NEWS: Pennsylvania Library Gets Overdue Book 50 Years Later With $20 Bill
