Northern tier gets hit with snow and ice

TUNKHANNOCK, WYOMING COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) -- The bitter cold is back and giving us all a reality check just one day after spring-like weather. As for the snow we got early this morning, the northern tier got hit the hardest.

"It's really cold out today. It's freezing," said Robin Branzburg.

Brrr! Once again, it's time to bundle up!


"It changed a lot! I was in short sleeves in my yard and it was amazing then all of a sudden I'm watching the temperature go down and wake up to minus two this morning," said Bonnie DeLyon.

While there is snow on the ground, the big issue with this storm is the ice.


"There's ice chunks all over the place," said Tyler Greene.

Ice blockages along the Susquehanna River form catching drivers' eyes as they go by.


"There's a lot of ice just flowing all over the place it's pretty incredible."

The streets of downtown Tunkhannock -- pretty empty. Business owners tell me the weather made for a slow day. But I did find some people braving the cold for something warm.

To keep walkways and roads safe, crews were out salting, shoveling and plowing.


"Just drive a little slower and more carefully that's all you can do," said Tom DeLyon.

Officials are keeping an eye out for any ice jams that may form along the Susquehanna River.
