Central Pennsylvania experiencing first winter weather of season

York (York, Pennsylvania)

The inevitability of winter is here. Central Pennsylvania is gearing up for its first wintry weather of the season as forecasters are estimating our area could see one to three inches of snow. With that forecast, PennDOT is preparing for whatever Mother Nature throws our way.

Across the eight counties in our area, PennDOT will roll out over 300 plows and salting trucks to patrol the roads and make sure everyone is safe. Operators took yesterday and this morning to pre-treat some spots on area roadways and prepare the equipment for the first winter weather of the season. No matter what falls from the sky, PennDOT officials say they will be out in full force.

"We prepare for the worst. The forecast is one to three inches of snow so we prepare for that and if it turns out to be rain, we deal with that," said Chris Leiphart from PennDOT in York County.

Snow operations will run until 8 p.m. tonight where officials will then meet to discuss if any coverage needs to continue.
