Cecily Tynan reports on AccuWeather during Action News at 6 p.m. on January 18, 2019.

Winter Storm Watches have been issued as we prepare for a winter wallop, which is expected to bring snow, rain and ice to different parts of our region.

The light snow ended early, giving way to a dry and rather cloudy day with a seasonably cool high of 38.

TONIGHT: Becoming partly cloudy with a low of 28.

SATURDAY: Any morning sunshine fades behind clouds. The high hits 38.
Then we watch for a major storm affecting much of the east coast Saturday night into Sunday.
4pm -7pm: Rain and snow arrives
Saturday night: Heaviest precipitation. Lehigh Valley/Poconos will have snow covered roads; northwest suburbs will have a period of snow changing to ice; while areas along the I-95 metro area will have a brief period of snow changing to rain. South Jersey and Delaware will see rain most of the time.
Lehigh Valley: Period of heavy snow in the beginning (3-5"), longer duration of ice, changeover to rain.
Poconos: 6-12" of snow, with freezing rain mixed in.

SUNDAY: Heavy rain in the morning could cause localized flooding. At this point, most places will be dealing with rain exiting the region between 9AM to Noon.
Once the precipitation exits, temperatures will drop sharply during the day. The high hits 42 in the morning, but temperatures likely drop below freezing by 1PM, then in to the single digits overnight.

MONDAY (Martin Luther King Day): Blustery and frigid with partly sunny skies and the chance of some snow showers. The high drops to 14, with wind chills at or below zero.

TUESDAY: Partly sunny and still cold. The high hits 29.
