Montco Issues a Winter Storm Warning
The National Weather Service says those in Montgomery County, Pa. should expect some snow in the coming day with Winter Storm Nemo.
The National Weather Service in Mount Holly, N.J. has issued a Winter Storm Warning in effect from 3 p.m. on Friday through 6 a.m. on Saturday. The storm in the Montgomery County area of Pennsylvania is expected to bring between four and eight inches of snow.
"Heavy snow" and a "possible trace of ice" is expected in the storm.
We may even see a rare winter thunderstorm, as two weather fronts collide to form what the Weather Service has called "Winter Storm Nemo."
"Any snow Friday morning will change rain during the daylight hours then back to heavy snow late in the day Friday or Friday evening," said the NWS. "One to two inches-per-hour accumulations are possible for a couple of hours Friday night. Northerly winds will gust to 30 mph causing blowing and drifting. There is a small chance of a thunderstorm with the snow."
Montgomery County should not be as badly hit as areas further northeast.
"This region is probably going to be on the edge of the heavy snow, and amounts may vary from what is currently expected," said the NWS alert.
Area residents are asked to stay indoors when possible.
"[The storm] will make travel very hazardous or impossible," said the NWS.
