Happy New Year! The big story today – aside from the kids going back to school – is the weather. A Winter Weather Advisory has already been issued for Lancaster from noon today through 7 a.m. tomorrow.

The National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting the snow likely today “mainly after 4 p.m.” Tonight however, Lancaster may see an accumulation of three to five inches of snow overnight. Friday the big issue will be the cold. Wind chills are predicted at a negative two.

WGAL-TV’s meteorologist Paul Lynch followed the NWS’ lead this morning by predicting two to five inches. However, he predicted the snow would start mid to late afternoon today. He did also warn of blowing snow.

The Weather Channel is also predicting a mid to late afternoon start. They also indicate the snow will continue through 8 a.m. tomorrow.

S&S Weather does not specify the Lancaster area in its forecasts. However, a map of Pennsylvania shows the Lancaster region is expected to receive four to six inches.

This storm system has been named Hercules. Predictions are indicating the Northeastern section of the US will in fact see a storm worthy of that name. It is expected to affect the entire Northeast as two storm systems combine into one massive quick moving Nor’easter.
