Heavy snow, followed by sleet and freezing rain, is expected on Tuesday and early Wednesday in the local area.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a winter storm warning for Bradford, Susquehanna and Wyoming counties from midnight tonight through 7 a.m. Wednesday.

A total snow accumulation of 4 to 7 inches and an ice accumulation of around one tenth of an inch are expected, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow will develop after midnight tonight and become heavy during the morning commute. Snow will mix with sleet and freezing rain by early afternoon on Tuesday and continue overnight, the weather service said.

Travel could be very difficult, the NWS said. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute on Tuesday. Winds gusting as high as 30 mph are possible as well, particularly on Wednesday.

A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice will make travel very hazardous or impossible.
