Winter weather advisory issued for Lehigh Valley: Snow expected Friday into Saturday

More snow is expected this weekend in the Lehigh Valley.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the region, which goes into effect 10 p.m. Friday.
In the latest forecast update Friday morning, the weather service said the area is expecting 2 to 3 inches of snow Friday night into Saturday. The Poconos will likely see the same snowfall amounts.
Snowfall is expected to be slightly higher south of the Lehigh Valley. Bucks County and Philadelphia could see 3 to 4 inches of snow, according to forecasters.
There is a possibility that snow could briefly become heavy during the overnight hours. Snow is expected to stop by Saturday morning.
The latest snow total projections for the National Weather Service Mount Holly, N.J., forecast area.
A clipper system jogging across the country will produce the latest round of snow, with help from cold air that has moved into the region after a cold front passed through overnight, according to the weather service’s forecast discussion.
“One good thing with this system is that the low is fairly weak, so winds look pretty light as the system moves through,” the forecast discussion notes.
Although most of the snow will wrap up by mid-morning Saturday, additional snow showers could linger, according to the forecast discussion.
The rest of Saturday should be cloudy, with highs in the upper 30s.
The snow Friday comes days after the biggest snowstorm of the season, which brought up to a foot of snow to some areas of the Lehigh Valley Tuesday. The Lehigh Valley International Airport recorded 9.1 inches of snow from that storm alone.

Mainly dry today with gusty winds diminishing later on. Snow arrives after rush hour tonight and lingers into Saturday morning.
