Rob Radzonowski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in State College, says the storm will start slow, then pick up later

"We have a storm system moving our way. It's going to spread some light snow into the region during the afternoon hours, and that'll increase in intensity headed into the evening and parts of the overnight hours, and we will start to see some accumulations by mid to late afternoon," he says.

A winter weather advisory is in effect until 7:00 a.m. tomorrow

Radzonowski says the Harrisburg area can expect about four inches by the end of the storm, while State College and the surrounding area should see up to six inches.

Radzonowski adds York County and communities near the Maryland border are looking at two to four inches.

"It'll be a fluffier snow rather than a wet, heavy snow. So  yeah, in those terms, it'll be a light snow," he says.

Bitterly cold temperatures will follow the storm. Tomorrow's high is expected to be 13.

The latest expected snow totals from the NWS in State College for central PA:

Two to four inches:

Perry
Snyder
Adams
Cumberland
Dauphin
Franklin
Juniata
York
Mifflin

Three to five inches:

Northumberland
Schuylkill
