A winter charge will pierce by a Lehigh Valley this weekend and could pierce poignant layer to tools of a area, reduction than 48 hours after some locations saw near-record warmth.

The National Weather Service has released a winter charge watch in outcome from Saturday dusk by late Saturday night for wet, complicated snow. The warning comes a day after highs pushed into a top 60s in Allentown.

The lane of a charge this weekend would pierce a heaviest sleet amounts to a Lehigh Valley and a Poconos, with amounts dwindling as we pierce south. This would meant 4 to 6 inches of sleet in Carbon-Monroe, Berks, Lehigh, and Northampton counties, though reduce amounts closer to a Interstate 95 corridor.

The high finish totals of a charge could pierce as most as 8 inches of sleet to Mount Pocono.
