A nasty winter storm is heading our way, bringing snow accumulation and biting cold. A winter storm warning is in effect for the Lehigh Valley from 1 p.m. Thursday to 1 p.m. Friday.
The storm will begin as rain Thursday afternoon, the National Weather Service said, and will change to snow just in time for Thursday's evening commute. The bulk of the snow will fall Thursday night and Friday morning. The National Weather Service says to expect 6 to 10 inches of snow Thursday night.
Drivers should expect poor visibility throughout the storm, the NWS said, adding that road plowing operations will be affected because of blowing and drifting snow. The Pennsylvania Turnpike Authority is operating under a winter weather advisory and has dispatched emergency crews, it said.
