The latest forecast for Northampton greatly increased the amount of snow predicted in this weekend's winter storm.
Winter Storm "Nemo" could bring 6 to 12 inches of snow to the Northampton area Friday and Saturday. The lastest forecast from the National Weather Service predicts 1 to 3 inches of snow Friday, then another 5 to 9 inches overnight Friday into Saturday. That is a radical change from an earlier forecast, which predicted far less snow for the Bucks County area. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for southeast Pennsylvania, including Northampton at 3:20 p.m. on Thursday. In that bulletin, forecasters predicted 4 to 8 inches of snow, with a trace of ice.
A massive winter storm is going to hit the Northeast Friday night bringing 1 to 30 inches of snow.
