Some lingering snowflakes drifted to the ground early this morning on the Public Square.
Comments on The Times Leader’s Facebook page also reported snowfall in Shavertown, Bear Creek and Wapwallopen. The light snow is not enough to hamper the roadways, which are clear and dry. Several schools in the area are under delays or closures.
Forecasts for the day call for up to 3 inches of snow in Wilkes-Barre, with temperatures in the lower 30s. The next few days should bring a mixture of clouds and sun with highs only in the upper 20s. A new system will move into the area this weekend, bringing a wintry mix of snow and sleet along with highs in the mid 30s.
