Clipper Low Brought Light Snow to area Wed Feb 20th
This Alberta Clipper acted VERY much like we thought it would (see our forecast feature included below the snowfall results). The heaviest snow fell in the Laurels, and along and south of the Turnpike. Locations north of i-80 had very little snow at all. A heavy burst of snow over Adams and York Counties (some reports of 2-4 inches) in the evening hours on Wed made things interesting there, though.
