Chance of rain and snow this weekend

A 30 percent chance of snow develops again before 8 a.m. Sunday, according to the weather service forecast.

The federal agency tasked with providing weather forecasts is now predicting a slight chance of snow Saturday afternoon in Western Massachusetts followed by a greater chance of snow Saturday night into Sunday morning across the state.

"Light snow is expected to begin overnight with accumulations less than an inch expected by daybreak Saturday", the advisory states.

Snow is forecast to total 1 to 2 inches in the Lehigh Valley, 2 to 3 inches in parts of Warren County and up to 4 inches in the Pocono Mountains and northern New Jersey. The storm is expected to taper off Saturday evening. "Snow should diminish late Saturday night". The highest accumulations of snow and ice are expected in the higher elevations, the weather service said.

It will also be less severe, he said, because the threat of high winds is nearly nonexistent, with wind out of the east expected to only reach 8 miles per hour.

Pedestrians are warned to walk carefully and dress for the weather, and motorists are urged to drive with caution.

The snow will continue into early Sunday morning. It will be partly sunny, with a high near 44.

Temperatures will rise into the upper 40s Monday and Tuesday, but drop into the 30s on Wednesday.

Saturday night will see some snow showers, but late.
