Original Story:

Awinter Storm will be hitting the area over the next 24 hours, and is expected to bring four to eight inches of snow with it.

The national Weather Service in Mount Holly, N.J., has issues a Winter Storm Warning in effect from 3 p.m. today through 6 a.m. Saturday.

Heavy snow - one to two inches per-hour accumulations - are expected Friday afternoon and evening, and there is a slight chance of a thunderstorm during the snow.

A blizzard warning is in effect for New York, Connecticut, Northern New Jersey and surrounding areas. According to the NWS alert, our region will be on the edge of the heavy snow, and amounts may vary from what is expected.

Closures are starting to be announced in the area. The Girl Scout Cadette Troop 782 meeting in Collegeville is canceled for tonight, as is the Bingo at  Encore Experiences at Harleysville (Harleysville Senior Center) tomorrow.
