Winter Storm Watch Issued for ‘Back-to-Back Nor’easters’

Tuesday may be the first day of spring, but if forecasters are correct, weather that’s anything but spring-like is about to develop. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch and is warning residents to prepare for ‘back-to-back nor’easters’ and dangerous travel conditions late Tuesday and Wednesday.

2 to 4 Inches of Snow Plus Wintry Mix Possible Wednesday

Business was already brisk at the Lower Saucon Township Giant–a perennially popular destination for many local winter storm preppers–even before the National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the Lehigh Valley Wednesday for 2 to 4 inches of snow followed by freezing rain, sleet and possibly rain.

Wintry Weather Wednesday Could Affect Travel, School

On the heels of a storm that dropped snow and then freezing rain on the Saucon Valley on Super Bowl Sunday, another approaching winter storm is expected to bring a combination of snow, ice and possibly rain to the region Wednesday, when it will potentially affect travel and school.
