A winter storm warning has been issued for Monroe County and all neighboring counties, and the National Weather Service expects some higher snow totals in its latest forecast.
From Monday night into Tuesday, southern Monroe County and much of Carbon County are looking at 8 to 12 inches, while the forecast calls for 12 to 18 inches for Mount Pocono and northern Monroe County.
Snowfall rates above 1 inch per hour are expected “especially around the Tuesday morning commute, which will make for very hazardous travel conditions,” the NWS in Philadelphia/Mount Holly said in its Monday morning update.
A road in Pocono Township is clear March 11, 2023 after an overnight storm. Monroe County could see up to 18 inches of snow due to another winter storm slated to start Monday night.
