    A major storm has formed off the coast. Fortunately, it’s too far east to cause any significant snow impacts for our area. It will however, create a bitter and cold wind on Sunday.

    Saturday Night

    Light snow formed mainly east of Philadelphia. Coastal counties(Ocean, Atlantic, Cape May, Sussex) saw a coating of snow on the ground, including some road ways.


    Gusty wind up to 40 mph should develop with colder air moving in. There may be a few snow showers from Philadelphia to south of the region Sunday afternoon. The light snow could quickly accumulate to another coating of snow given the cold temperatures. Bitter cold wind chills will hit the area throughout the day.

    "It will only cause trouble for the roads if it comes down heavy enough," said NBC10 Meteorologist Dave Warren. "It has to come down heavy to cause any problems because it will be colder. If it's heavy enough and coats some side streets it could be a little slippery briefly before it melts."


    While Monday will be clear, rain should move in to the area Tuesday afternoon. There is also the potential for ice in areas north and west of the region which could affect the evening commute in the Lehigh Valley.
