Berks County managed to mostly duck a storm that pummeled much of the northeast, dumping mountains of snow on New York and New England.

Reppert said Friday night that the snow falling in Berks was expected to taper off between midnight and 2 a.m., leaving behind about 3 inches in most parts of the county.
