Winter Storm Nemo: How Much Snow Will We Get?
Easton is preparing for a storm that bring 3 to 5 inches of snow today into Saturday morning
A winter storm will hit the Northeast and New England today into Saturday and Easton could get 3 to 5 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service.
That forecast is a downgraded version of what was released this morning, when the city was predicted to get nearly a foot of snow.
On Friday afternoon -- when the forecast seemed more dire -- the city of Easton declared a snow emergency effective at 8 p.m. Friday until 1 p.m. Saturday.
Residents who live along the city's snow emergency routes can park in the Pine Street garage for free during those hours.

The worst of the storm will hit tonight with heavy blowing snow expected, mainly before 4 a.m., could be heavy at times with 3 to 5 inches expected.
The National Weather Service says:
"As much as one to two feet of snow is forecast from the New York City metro area to Maine, with localized heavier amounts possible. This, in addition to wind gusts as high as 60-75 mph will create significant impacts to transportation and power. Coastal flooding is also possible from Boston northward."
The entire Lehigh Valley is under a winter storm warning.
