Winter Storm Watch for Nazareth Area Friday
The work and school week will end with a wintry mix, according to weather forecasters.
Another winter storm is on the way and it could make for very messy travel on Friday afternoon through Saturday morning.
Northampton County will be under a winter storm watch from Friday afternoon to Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service. The watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
Snow accumulation totals could measure 5 to 10 inches, according to the NWS. The Poconos and northwestern New Jersey are expected to receive the most snow.
Snow is expected to start falling Friday morning in the Nazareth area, the NWS says. The early snow will be followed by a mix of sleet and rain.
The precipitation is expected to switch back to snow later in the afternoon Friday. Then the storm will clear out, leaving sunny skies and a high of 30 degrees on Saturday.
WFMZ also says we can expect a wintry mix with some snow accumulation possible.
