What to look for on Smart Talk Tuesday, March 14, 2017:

Tuesday's Smart Talk provides the latest information on today's snowstorm.

It could end up being one of the largest winter storms during the month of March the region and Pennsylvania have ever seen.  As of 8:30 this morning, several areas have already gotten 14 inches of snow.  Some places could get up to 20 inches of snow.  Actually, there's been sleet throughout the region which can keep snow totals down.

This is not a normal day.  Almost everything is closed including schools and government operations.  There are few vehicles on the road but some that are have had problems.

On today's program, we'll talk with Eric Horst with the meteorology department at Millersville University, the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, Penndot in the Central Pennsylvania region, and the Pennsylvania State Police. 

By the way, the record snowfall for March measured at Harrisburg International Airport is more than 20 inches on this date in 1993.
