Snow possible for Cumberland


Cumberland Times-News

— CUMBERLAND — Alex Sosnowski, expert senior meterologist for AccuWeather, is reporting that Cumberland is among cities that could receive up to 3 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow morning.

Following is a portion of his column:

A storm swinging up from the South will spread a period of snow (and rain) from a portion of the Ohio Valley to part of the Northeast spanning Monday night into Tuesday night.

The premise of a single, moderate storm tracking northeastward entertained last week by AccuWeather.com meteorologists appears to be the most likely scenario.

Enough snow and slush will occur in some locations to slow travel and perhaps foil plans.

According to Meteorologist Steve Travis, "While an exceptionally heavy snowfall is not foreseen, enough snow to sweep, shovel or plow will occur from northeastern Kentucky to northern West Virginia, northwestern Virginia, northern Maryland, southern and eastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey."

Cities within this swath of snow that could receive up to 3 inches of snow include Morgantown, W.Va., Hagerstown, Md., Harrisburg, Reading and Allentown, Pa., and Netcong, N.J.
