Pennsylvanians are bracing for a one-two punch of rain and snow as a winter storm passes through the state.

The National Weather Service posted winter storm warnings Wednesday for the Laurel Highlands in western Pennsylvania and in the Pocono Mountains in the northeast. Winter weather advisories are in effect for a wide diagonal swath from the state's southwest corner to the northeast. Flood watches are posted in southeastern Pennsylvania, which is expected to get mostly rain.

Meteorologist Craig Evanego at the agency's State College station says snow will spread from the southwest to the northeast through Wednesday night, leaving slushy accumulations of three to six inches. Most sunny skies are forecast statewide for Thursday.

A spokesman says PennDOT crews will treat roads as needed but no major problems are anticipated.
