So a winter storm watch is issued for the pocono area mainly above 1,500 feet will see the worst of the winter storm and everyone else mainly rain heres some details of what you can expect.
Philly up to reading and quakertown all rain no problems with roads if anything starts wintry in the reading and quakertown area it will quickly change to rain with the lack of cold air
Lehigh and Allentown area mainly rain with the onset of some snow/sleet and frz rain but it will gradually change to all rain as the night goes on accumulations mainly a coating of snow and sleet in the upper lehigh vally and up to a trace of ice in the heightest elevations twards monroe county. winter weather advisory 20% chance but it will most likly not happen.(If heavy banding of snow forms before the change to rain they could get a little more snow and ice accumulation)
Sussex county and Lower elevations of monroe and carbon counties (below 1,300ft) even though they are under a winter storm watch im predicting winter weather advisory conditions for the lower elevations because they will change to sleet and all rain faster but they will expect some wintry precip. Snow and sleet accumulations anywhere from 1 up to 3 inches depending on what elevation you are ice accumulation from.1-.25 even though these totals are really small for ice only a trace of ice can lead to hazardous travel. Wintry precip will change to rain in the pre dawn hours (2-5 am) A few power outages are possible with some tree limbs down possible.
Higher elevations of monroe and carbon counties and the poconos area (above 1,300 ft) this is where it gets really interesting the snow and ice really get significant here. rain and snow will start early evening tuesday and on tuesday night heay snow and freezing rain will be possible but eventually it changes to rain showers on late wensday morning but this should be mainly an ice and snow event snow and sleet accumulations will be 2-4 inches above 1,300 feet but in the highest summits above 2,000ft you can get locally get 4-6 inches. Ice accumulation from .25 to .5 with locally .75 in the highest summits. Widespread power outages are possible and some trees could fall
So this is what your going to expect in these areas so far if you are in the danger zone get prepared now! So there is a chance of backend snow for areas allentown north on wensday night expect minor accumulations anywhere above 1,000 feet and little or none in allentown. So if you like winter weather go to the poconos!! I have a vacation house up there Pocono summit area between 1,800ft - 2,000 ft in elevation. The final forcast is uncertain but this is a good idea of what you will get.
