***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***
The first of two rounds of snow started up late Sunday night as a clipper system moved in from the west. This clipper system will continue effect the region with snow through Monday afternoon when the energy shifts off the coast to a developing low. Through Monday afternoon most locations will receive a general 2 to 4 inches of snow with lesser amounts to the northeast and higher amounts southwest. Highs on Monday will only reach the mid 20s. As the low off the coast rapidly strengthens Monday night look for the second round of snow to begin. This second round is associated with the deepening Nor'easter which will bring snow (some of it heavy) to the area Monday night into Tuesday afternoon. Snowfall totals from both rounds will vary from 4 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 taper Tuesday afternoon and evening from west to east, but as the snow is tapering look for the winds to increase. Highs on Tuesday will once again be in the mid and upper 20s. That's where highs will be yet again on Wednesday with 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.
