The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm watch for much of the local area as a potentially powerful storm makes its way up the east coast.
According to the watch the storm will likely develop near the Carolinas tomorrow and work its way to our area through Friday night. The storm will likely bring a mix of potentially heavy snow, sleet and rain as it moves on its path.
The amount of snow could vary depending on the track and speed of the storm but the most recent forecast predicts between 5 and 10 inches. The heaviest snow will likely fall in northwestern New Jersey and into the Poconos according to the watch.
Our area should start to see the snow Friday morning before mixing with the sleet and rain Friday night into Saturday morning. The storm could also bring winds between 15 and 25 MPH with gusts as high as 35 MPH.
