A potential major snow storm is expected to hit Butler County this weekend.
Tom Kines, a meteorologist with AccuWeather in State College, said the storm should produce at least six inches of snow by Monday. He said there is a chance it could produce up to a foot of snow, but closer to six is more likely.
“We feel pretty confident there will be six,” Kines said this morning.
Kines said light snow is expected to begin around sunrise on Sunday and will continue throughout the day. He said that this snow is not expected to cause any problems.
However, the snow will become steadier and heavier between 3 and 8 p.m. The heaviest of the snow will be Sunday night and into Monday morning.
“I suspect most of the storm is done with by Monday morning,” Kines said.
The snow should stop by about noon.
