As of 945pm tuesday there is a winter storm warning for the pocono mountains and lower elevations in monroe and carbon counties. So far high elevations in the poconos have had all snow mainly above 1,200ft still waiting for snow reports on the NWS mount holly site.
People in the lower elevations that are in monroe and carbon counties have had a mix changing to snow in heavier bands.
The radar based on weather.com right now shows that snow is trying to get south twards allentown but it may not get there unless the temp gets down a little more and a heavier rain band comes at the right time and this is a possibilty but just in general anyone from allentown to philly will get mainly rain but with heavier rain bands you could get some breif mixing with sleet at time if you have a tempreture below 35 degrees the better chance of getting that is allentown.
There will be no accumulations of any wintry precip from this. In the philly area right now theres rain with wind picking up rapidly gusts of 25-30mph. A gust of wind just now flickered my lights it must be the dynamic rain bands and the low pressure coming right on top of us later tonight.
Now back to the poconos pockets of heavy snow are coming through the area with some good accumulations possible in the summits above 1400 ft (3-6) and for the other areas in the warning will get 2-3 inches before all of this changes to ice in the overnight hours also the icing will be bad especially between 2-10 am the places below 1200ft in the poconos will get .05-.25in for people in a higher elevation 1200-1800ft in the poconos could get .15-.35in and for anyone in the summits or the pocono plateau above 1800ft you will get the worst with .25-.5 and locally higher as you get twards the peaks of the mountains.
Only a trace of ice leads to hazardous travel tonight so if you live anywhere north of the lehigh valley make sure you drive safly and use plenty of caution on roads on wensday morning. Hope you enjoy my forecasts.
