While many parts of the Oil Region were just experiencing their first snow accumulations over the last two night, many Snow Belt communities have now witnessed their fourth major snowfall already.
Weather experts say the snow totals in some Titusville-area neighborhoods had reached nine inches by Wednesday morning following winter’s latest blast. Saegertown was reporting eight inches of accumulation, Lincolnville checked in at seven inches, and Erie and Union City had picked up five inches of fresh snow.
In this area, parts of Routes 36 and 27 and a section of Georgetown Road in Frenchcreek Township were closed at various times Tuesday night due to weather-related crashes. Warren County schools started classes on Wednesday morning on a two-hour delay.
Forecasters say a warming trend, following possible lows in the upper teens Wednesday night, should begin on Thursday with temperatures well into the 50’s expected for this coming weekend.
