(Harrisburg) –With 8 to 14 inches of snow expected between Sunday and Tuesday, much of the state is under a winter storm warning.

According to the National Weather Service at State College, that snow is expected to start falling in the Harrisburg area around 10 a.m. Sunday. The multi-day storm will bring a mix of light and heavy snow as well as some ice to much of the region.

Light snow is expected during the day on Sunday with accumulations of 1 to 3 inches.

Sunday night and into the overnight hours of early Monday, that snow will become heavier, potentially mixed with ice, bringing another 2 to 4 inches of snow and sleet accumulation.

Sunday will be cold and windy, too, with a high of 27 and a low of 26 and nighttime wind gusts up to 21 mph.

Monday morning’s commute will be awful, forecasters say, as the multi-day snow event continues.

Monday will see snow, freezing rain and sleet before 7 a.m., turning to snow and freezing rain between 7 and 8 a.m., then turning back into heavy snow after 8 a.m. Another 3 to 5 inches of snow can be expected during the daylight hours on Monday with high temperature of 32 and wind gusts up to 22 mph.

The snow is expected to begin tapering off Monday night with wind gusts up to 25 mph and a low of 29.

And the snowstorm should move out of the area by 8 a.m. Tuesday, but the cold and windy conditions will linger with a high of 36 and a low of 26 and wind gusts of 30 mph. Tuesday night will see an 80 percent chance of another round of snow.
