A WINTER-TYPE STORM IN EARLY SPRING IS EXPECTED TO BRING WINTRY PRECIPITATION TO MUCH OF THE AREA BEGINNING LATE TONIGHT.
THE BULK OF THE PRECIPITATION WILL FALL ON MONDAY AND SHOULD END MONDAY NIGHT. THE PRESENT FORECAST WOULD CALL FOR AN ADVISORY- LEVEL SNOWFALL, BUT CONFIDENCE IS LIMITED AND THE FORECAST IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
A complex low pressure system is poised to hit the region late Sunday through Monday.
What does it mean for Northampton and Warren counties?
Precipitation could start around midnight, and it's possible we see a few tenths of an inch of snow by daybreak. What happens during the day Monday is where the forecast gets difficult.
Some factors that may impact snowfall amounts? Most of the precipitation is expected to fall during the day, and marginal temperatures may make it tough for snow to accumulate on roads. Snowfall intensity will also factor in on how much we see. The lighter the snowfall, the less likely it will be able to accumulate. Elevation may play a role on accumulations as well. The higher terrain may see more snow than lower areas.
Areas to the west of Easton area may see a bit more snow. Portions of Lehigh County may see up to 3" snow amounts, whereas Northampton and Warren Counties may see up to 2".
This is a very fragile forecast, and many people could be surprised or disappointed, depending on their opinion of a Spring snow!
