Drivers, Penndot prep for storm

READING, Pa. -

With snow expected to arrive in the area Sunday, PennDOT is urging motorists to take it slow this weekend.

Workers are on standby as Sunday's storm approaches, PennDOT authorities confirm.

They say if there's snow, they will open their command station in Allentown, and a full complement of salt trucks will be dispatched to surrounding counties.

Officials say, due to the mild weather this year, they haven't used much salt, so it has plenty on hand, as well as ample anti-skid materials just in case the snow starts to fall.
