Meteorological Service: warnings of showers this afternoon in the region

Snow squall

The National Weather Service appears to be ready to display its first snowstorm warnings of the year in the Lehigh Valley.

The weather service has issued a snowstorm warning until 3:30 p.m. for the following: I-80, US-46, US-209 near East Stroudsburg, PA – NJ; I-380 near Mount Pocono – Emerald Lakes, PA, I-80, US-46, US-206 near New York – Newark, NY – NJ – CT and US-46 near Belvidere, NJ – PA.

“Dangerous blackout conditions with stronger gusts and wind gusts at 40 mph will sometimes be possible,” said a tweet from the Mount Holly forecast office. He noted that, depending on the schedule, some gusts could cross Carbon and Monroe counties after 1 p.m. and other parts of the area later.

The synchronization of additional bursts would place them northwest of the area around 4:00 p.m. and in the Allentown area between 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., said meteorologist Ed Vallee of Empire Weather, who provides a local forecast for The Morning Call.

Vallée said a general of 4 p.m. at 8 p.m. The window “always represents” the region.

All warnings issued by the weather service will generally last 30 to 60 minutes, as will warnings of storms and severe tornadoes. Warnings will be issued when these showers are expected (short bursts of heavy snowfall resulting in rapid visibility reduction).

Grains are dangerous because they are often accompanied by gusty winds, resulting in sudden navigation conditions and slippery roads. They have been the cause of high-speed accidents that resulted in chain-reaction collisions and accumulations on the country’s roads. Many injured and dead.

The meteorological service indicates that the warning aims to provide drivers with a better awareness of the situation to mitigate the impacts associated with these grains.

Earlier this year, on January 30, a cold afternoon front caused a brief snowfall in Lehigh and Northampton counties. The guests were accompanied by gusts of wind from 50 to 60 mph.

Forecasters say today’s high winds could cause damage to trees and power outages, especially in the northern regions, where significant ice remains.

Tonight’s lows will fall by single digits and teenagers, around 10 to 15 degrees below average. The chills will be one digit or less.

Thursday’s high temperatures will be difficult to get out of teenagers in Poconos and the 1920s in the Lehigh Valley. Chills will usually be in teenagers throughout the day.
