Local Forecast Discussion

Tonight: Windy with snow of varying rates, untreated roads and sidewalks will be slick. Blowing and drifting snow. Low: 18

***Winter Storm Warning in effect most of the viewing area through at least Tuesday afternoon***
***Winter Weather Advisory in effect for areas west of the Lehigh Valley into Tuesday afternoon***

Occasional snow and flurries have been affecting the area today giving us a general 2-4 inches of accumulation with lesser amounts to the northeast and higher amounts southwest. As the low off the coast rapidly strengthens overnight look for the snow to quickly intensify across parts of the area, especially east. Snowfall totals from both rounds will vary from 2 inches in the west parts of the viewing area to well over a foot of snow in New Jersey (see snowfall map below). The snow will gradually taper off during the afternoon and evening hours on Tuesday as the storm pushes to the northeast. Temperatures will remain in the middle and upper 20s on Tuesday, but a gusty northwest wind will make if feel much colder at times. Breezy and cold conditions will continue on Wednesday with highs holding in the mid to upper 20s despite mostly sunny skies.
Please stay tuned for the very latest information on this developing Nor'easter. Due to the location of this storm system minor fluctuations in the storm's position and track could significantly impact parts of our viewing area.
