ERIE, Pa. (AP) -- Snow continues to fall in Erie, Pennsylvania, and surrounding areas that already have seen a record amount of snow over the past few days.
The National Weather Service office in Cleveland says at least an additional 5 to 10 inches are expected through Wednesday.
The storm brought 34 inches of snow on Christmas Day, an all-time daily snowfall record for Erie.
Another 24.5 inches fell by Tuesday night, bringing the total since Dec. 23 to more than 62.9 inches.
