They are expected to slide south toward Edinboro later in the afternoon. Additional accumulations of 2-4″ with locally higher amounts through mid afternoon, including Erie. This would give storm totals by early evening of 6-10″ in Erie county, mainly north of route 6. Roads will be a slow go in the snow today, and extra precautions should be taken if you need to travel today. Lesser amounts of 1-2″ expected in most of Crawford and Warren counties.
