A rare October snowstorm is expected to hit our area Saturday and could cause travel problems and power outages as heavy, wet snow accumulates on trees still holding their foliage.
The temperature will drop to about 34 tonight and we could see snow falling before 8 a.m. Saturday. The weather service predicts rain and snow with about 3-5 inches possible and a high near 39 on Saturday.
Chance of precipitation is 100 percent.
Sunday should be much different with sunny skies and a high of 49.
The Lehigh Valley Weather Patrol is predicting 4 to 8 inches in our area with the heaviest snow falling Saturday from 5 p.m. until midnight.
