***Winter Storm Warning for Schuylkill, Carbon, Monroe, Pike, and Sussex counties through 4pm Monday***
***Winter Storm Warning for Berks, Lehigh, Northampton, Warren, Hunterdon, Bucks and Montgomery counties through 1pm Monday***
***Winter Weather Advisory for areas south through Monday Afternoon***
The approaching storm system will continue to spread some snow into the area overnight (which could be heavy at times) before eventually mixing with/changing over to sleet, freezing rain, or rain. The heaviest time period looks to be from 1AM to 9AM on Monday, which will cause problems for your morning commute. Depending on how quickly the change over occurs will determine the final amount of accumulation we will receive from this storm system (more ice means less snow). Snowfall amount will generally be heavier to the north and less to the south.
Northern Schuylkill, Carbon, Monroe, Sussex and counties northward are looking at 8+ inches of snow. From this point southward, we expect 4-8 inches of snow through central Berks, Lehigh, Northampton, northern Bucks, and Hunterdon counties. Look for 2-4 inches just north of Philadelphia across northern Chester, Montgomery, southern Buck and Mercer counties. Around 1-2 inches will be possible through the Philadelphia area with less than a inch across southern New Jersey.
Any slight change in the track, precipitation type, or intensity could alter the amount of accumulation we ultimately see, stay tuned for the very latest. Bitterly cold conditions take over behind this system, so watch for a rapid freeze Monday night into Tuesday morning as low temperatures dip into the single digits.
