Central Pennsylvania is still on track to see one or several inches of snow, forecasters said Wednesday afternoon.

The good news is the inclement weather is not likely to affect the evening commute, as forecasters said the bulk of the snow will fall by the late afternoon.

But until then, central Pennsylvanians could experience dangerous driving conditions from snow, rain and sleet showers. The National Weather Service said the mixed precipitation could leave an icy glaze over local roads.

A combination of rain and snow will fall before 2 p.m. Wednesday. Snow could combine with sleet between 2–3 p.m., then shift to solely rain after 3 p.m. The rain could last until about 11 p.m., according to the NWS.
