The winter storm watch that the National Weather Service issued yesterday morning for the local area has been downgraded to a "winter weather advisory."
A storm watch is a prelude to a storm warning, during which six or more inches of snow are anticipated.
The weather advisory indicates that forecasters feel fewer than six inches of snow will fall this evening.
The heaviest snow is expected between 5 p.m. and 1 a.m.
A winter storm warning – six inches or more of snow – is still in effect in southern Lehigh County with the boundary being just south of New Tripoli.
