This is a tough one …
The toughest part is number one listed above. This time of year, with the higher sun angle, it is harder to keep the temperature below freezing during the day. Thick clouds, and steady moderate to at times heavy precipitation is the about the only way to do it.
The heaviest snow should be to our south (think Lancaster, York, Gettysburg) and to our east (think Allentown, Bethlehem). So any shift northwest, and we could get several more inches.
However, if you live near State College on north, you may not get much at all, just a couple of inches. So a shift southeast could give us much less snow.
A tough forecast, with many unresolved questions. But this is my best guess. It may be great or a disaster or just ok. Too much uncertainty. But one thing is certain … winter is still not letting go (another chance for snow around the upcoming weekend too … ba humbug I say!)
