With an intense winter storm bringing heavy snow, high winds, sleet and freezing rain expected across the state through this weekend, Governor Tom Wolf has signed a state of emergency declaration to allow for increased assistance with storm-related needs, and the commonwealth is imposing speed restrictions and a ban on all commercial traffic, including buses on most interstates and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
Governor Tom Wolf is reminding motorists to be aware that heavy rain overnight, with rain showers through most of the day tomorrow, could impact travel across much of eastern Pennsylvania. Motorists should watch for ponding on roadways and flooding in poor drainage areas while traveling.
The Wolf Administration warned that all Pennsylvania travelers and commuters should be aware of and prepared for snow squalls forecast for much of the state tomorrow afternoon until 6 p.m.
With winter weather forecasted to impact much of Pennsylvania Thursday morning through Friday morning, Governor Tom Wolf said state agencies are prepared and is asking all Pennsylvanians to prepare, too.
