UPDATE: Travel restrictions lifted on major Valley roads after winter storm

SUNBURY – As the latest winter storm moves out of the Valley, temperatures are near freezing and some light snow is still falling. A glaze of freezing rain overnight slicked up roads and sidewalks. We know of no road closures at this time. Main highways are wet and slushy, secondary roads are icy. Untreated surfaces are very slippery.


Wednesday, February 13, 2019: AccuWeather says we’ll have a cloudy day with a few additional snow showers, with no additional accumulation and a high of 34 degrees. We’ll hit 40-degrees tomorrow according to the forecast.  PPL reports, all of their customers in our region do have electricity. Area county communications centers reported a quiet morning.


Travel has returned to normal on major roads in the area. PennDOT has lifted 45 mph speed restrictions on major roads such as I-80 and I-180, and a commercial vehicle ban has also been lifted on those roads.


Many Valley and surrounding area schools are running on delayed openings, however. All of that latest information is posted on our Winternet page.  The Valley saw about three to four inches of snow fall, with some higher totals in higher elevations, followed by a coating of ice.
