(Harrisburg) -- The midstate is bracing for another winter storm just days after high winds left tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians without power. 

Forecasters with the National Weather Service in State College say Berks County will see the highest totals with up to ten inches. Dauphin County could see up to six inches. Eastern counties like Lebanon and Lancaster may see up to eight inches.

Meteorologist Aaron Tyburski says tomorrow's rush hours could be messy.

"However, with the time of year, now that we're getting into the second week of March, the sun can actually do some work through the clouds when we do get an event like this," Tyburski said. "So it's going to take a moderate or heavy intensity to really get some big accumulations going where there would be issues."

Tyburski says the heaviest snowfall will come in the late morning and early afternoon tomorrow.

The wet snow and some winds could pose a risk to trees and power lines, especially ones weakened by this past weekend's storm. 

The weather is expected to dry out by the end of the week, with temperatures above freezing.
