Storm brings scattered snow

POLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – The Mahoning and Shenango valleys ushered in March with yet another winter storm.

March’s Winter Wallop began with snow showers in the overnight hours of Saturday into Sunday morning.

Winter weather advisories are in effect through Sunday for the viewing area.

Most areas will see some snowfall on Sunday with accumulations ranging anywhere from 2 to 6 inches.

This latest winter storm was difficult to plot, but the heaviest snow accumulation will stay mostly to the south of Youngstown.

Road crews are seasoned by this winter’s pounding of snow and were ready when the snow started to fly. While a salt shortage threatened to stall crews in late February, ODOT and PennDOT officials said they have plenty in stock to get through this latest bout of winter weather.

Motorists can expect snow-covered secondary roads, but main highways should be mostly clear.

Snow is expected to taper off through the day on Sunday with scattered snow showers developing again Sunday evening with additional accumulations of 1 inch or less.
