A light accumulation will be possible, ranging from a coating to an inch or perhaps two in spots, but a lot of this will probably occur on grassy, elevated, and untreated surfaces. We may (maybe) even see a little sunshine during the second half of the day. The Lehigh Valley should expected six to 10 inches of snow while eastern Warren County is in line for nine to 14 inches.
