In the Lehigh Valley, Berks, and the Poconos, snow will be the dominant precipitation type where 2-4″ of snowfall is likely by late afternoon when the system departs.

Quiet during the day on Wednesday, before the next chance of snow develops Wednesday evening. A series of disturbances may yield an extended period with rounds of snow from Wednesday night into Friday. There is a chance we may see a lull Thursday night, but regardless measurable snowfall will occur during this timeframe across much of the region. (Some mixing will occur along the coast). A few more model runs will be needed to hone in on totals but as it stands now, snowfall of 6+” appears possible in some locations by late-day Friday.
