More snow could be on the way.

While most of us are tired of all that left over snow from the last big storm to move across the region, skiers and snowboarders can rejoice tonight.

After a bright and chilly Saturday afternoon, a quick moving storm tracking off the mid-Atlantic coast tonight will brush central Pennsylvania with a period of snow Sunday morning.

The National Weather Service is calling for another two to four inches of the frozen precipitation.

Snow is supposed to overspread the eastern two-thirds of the state from south to north. The storm will begin in the predawn hours Sunday.

Snowfall rates may briefly approach one inch per hour south and east of Interstate 81 in the morning. It will move out of the area later in the afternoon.

Bitterly cold air flows are also on the way Sunday night. Lows will run from zero to 15 degrees in some areas overnight.

Even if the bulk of the storm would track more to the east of Franklin County, NWS warns even a lesser amount of precipitation could lead to slick and slippery road conditions.

PennDOT and the Turnpike Commission are reminding motorists to adjust speeds based on driving conditions.

PennDOT hasn’t issued restrictions for the Interstates like it did during the last storm, however.

Motorists can either call 5-1-1 or visit the state’s 511 website for the latest travel, roadway and traffic conditions.
