(State College) -- The midstate is bracing for its second winter storm in less than a week.

Snow is expected to arrive tonight and continue through tomorrow afternoon.

The National Weather Service in State College says Berks County is expected to be the hardest hit with six to 10 inches.

Berks will be under a winter storm warning from seven this evening until 3:00 a.m. Thursday.

Four to eight inches of snow is forecast for Columbia, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Schuylkill and York counties.

Those areas will be under a winter storm watch from late tonight through tomorrow evening.

The rest of the region should see between one and four inches of snow.

Temperatures aren't expected to fall below 30.

The latest blast of wintry weather comes on the heels of a nor'easter that brought winds up to 60 miles-per hour and wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain.

According to thegovernor's office, roughly 587,000 customers across the state lost power during the peak of the storm.
