PennDOT officials say they've already started preparing for what the weather may bring to the roads.

"Starting early this [Friday] morning we had our crews prepping the trucks, plows making sure their ready, filling them with salt and other material. Getting on the roadway and preparing the road way with any pre-treater. Then we'll have the crews starting tomorrow -- late tonight out there ready to go," said Sean Brown.

PennDot says it's bringing in extra crews late Friday night to make sure the roads are ready for Saturday.
