Total accumulations of snow are still predicted by the National Weather Service to be up to three inches, on top of up to two-tenths of an inch of ice.

Rain combining with melting snowpack may generate "urban and isolated" flooding, and the weather agency on Friday issued a flood watch for all of MA and all of Southern New England that remains in effect until Saturday afternoon.

Here in the Lehigh Valley, wind chills are expected to drop to 0-5 F across most areas and to around 10 below zero in the southern Poconos. Colder temperatures over the weekend, with possible single digit lows Saturday night. Mostly cloudy, with a temperature falling to around 33 by 5 p.m. Northwest wind 14 to 16 miles per hour.

There is a slight chance for snow or rain on Sunday while the high will be about 38 degrees.
