A word of caution and preparation: While Lancaster does not see snow in its immediate forecast, it may soon. Weather models (different than a forecast) indicate we are in for a major blizzard next week. S&S Storm Chasing posted a possibility of a storm early next week. The Weather Channel’s 10 day forecast indicates snow showers on Tuesday. The weekend however may be a different story. Both S&S Storm Chasing Team and the Mid Atlantic Storm Watch indicate we may get two to three feet between 8-10 February. Yes, we said feet. Again, these are models and not a forecast. Keep an eye on local forecasts and be prepared.
