Much of central Pennsylvania received anywhere from a coating to 4 inches of snow late Wednesday night into Thursday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Mostly sunny, breezy and cold this afternoon.

The Centre Region could see its first measurable snowfall of the winter Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

The National Weather Service, in a winter weather advisory issued early Wednesday evening, is calling for total snow accumulations between 2 and 4 inches of snow to fall in northwest New Jersey including Sussex and Warren counties. Highs in the mid to upper 20s in most areas.

The snow and subfreezing temperatures will create potentially hazardous travel conditions, with snow sticking on contact to untreated surfaces, as well as reduced visibilities, according to the weather advisory. Wind: W/SW 5 to 10 miles per hour.

"A system moving in from the Southwest and another weaker one across northern NY state is going to combine, and may bring us a period of some snow showers - or even a little bit of light snow in the afternoon", WJZ's Bob Turk said.

Friday: A chance of snow showers after 1pm.
