The Tri-State area received up to 6.5 inches of snow and ice in some areas by Friday evening and could see the total reach 8 inches by this morning, thanks to the tail end of a second snowstorm, a more powerful Nor'easter, according to the National Weather Service.
The snowfall should end by 9 or 10 this morning, meteorologist Chris Strong said.
A weak coastal storm produced Friday morning's snow, which caused several local school systems to close schools for the day.
Slight variations in temperature across the Tri-State area caused snow and ice accumulation totals to be uneven as temperatures slightly above freezing, which is 32 degrees, melted some snow, Strong said.
As of 6:30 p.m. Friday, there was 6.5 inches of snow at the water treatment plant near Williamsport while there was only 2.75 inches in Boonsboro, local weather observers reported.
