Following two light bursts of snow to end the week, Lehigh Valley residents will have to trade their brooms for shovels - as two significant snowstorms appear to be on the way.
The next storm will also be quite progressive and it will contain more moisture and energy so I am expecting a bigger production.
Friday will bring another light snow chance, once again primarily north of the Metro. The skies should start to clear by Monday evening. This will set us up for a nicer day tomorrow. Daytime highs will only hit the low 70s.
Our latest forecast for the Sunday-Monday winter storm, as of Saturday evening. This will be a better-organized system with more moisture, so it's more likely that some localities will see 6 inches or more of snow.
A couple of inches are on the ground as of 3 a.m. Saturday, March 2, 2019, on Route 57 in Franklin Township, Warren County. The next one Sunday night into Monday morning will likely produce more snow, but won't necessarily be a "stronger" storm.
Some adults may need another measles vaccination, health experts say
Doctors urge parents to get their children vaccinated and say it's the best way to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Check your immunization records to make sure you and your children have had two doses of the measles vaccine (MMR or MMRV).
The map above shows that a large part of the region is in a four to eight-inch swath.
Mountain areas don't have to wait until at least Friday night to see snow. Bitterly cold air will move in behind the system. Temperatures remain well below average, with plenty of sunshine and readings near 30 degrees.
Highs Wednesday will be only in the 20s.
When the snow is not falling steadily, it will have a hard time accumulating except on grassy areas, which will reduce the impact some.
Follow updates from regions affected by the storm across the U.S. Snow will be a mixed bag of sleet and rain over Cape Cod, especially the south side and the Islands.
