6:18 pm
continuing right through thursday night at 9:00 p.m. tomorrow night will be pouring as we head into friday watch how energy transfers off the coast and see that center of the circulation, it does come up and strengthen so on the back edge of this friday we will have rain, very, very strong winds and probably a brief period of snow, late friday, even into the overnight hours. so, impacts from this snowfall low from the city on south but moderate impact off to the north as i will show you, not a ice impact but heavy rain, wind will be two greatest impacts. wind is biggest threat around back edge of the storm as high pressure builds behind it. these tightly pack isobars showing that tight wind gusts 50 to 60 miles an hour especially along the coast and friday, 4:00 p.m. here's winds all across the region gusting to 50 miles an hour. as far as that chance of snow on the back edge our best chance of the coating or more is in the white shading, best chance to see an inch or more is in the lehigh valley and
