8 or More Inches of Snow Expected, Forecasters Say

Tuesday's winter storm could drop as much as eight inches of snow on the Southern Lehigh area, according to the National Weather Service. Another forecaster—the Eastern PA Weather Authority—is predicting 10 to 15 inches for the area.

The winter storm that prompted the closure of Southern Lehigh schools Tuesday could drop as much as eight inches of snow on the area, according to the National Weather Service, which has issued a winter storm warning that will remain in effect through 1 a.m. Wednesday.

The Southern Lehigh Public Library and St. Michael the Archangel School also closed Tuesday, and many businesses throughout the region are closing early, due to poor road conditions.

Coopersburg borough has declared a snow emergency, which took effect at noon and will remain in effect until noon on Wednesday.

During snow emergencies, vehicles must be removed from designated snow emergency routes to help facilitate borough snow plow operations.

After the snow stops falling the National Weather Service is predicting that temperatures will plummet into the single digits.

A wind chill advisory has been issued because of the dangerous cold that is expected on Wednesday from 1 to 11 a.m.

Another forecasting service—the Eastern PA Weather Authority—is predicting 10 to 15 inches of snow for southern Lehigh and Northampton counties from the storm.
