Forecasters warn that a significant winter storm is headed to the Newtown-area to start the week.

While the National Weather Service’s forecasters based in Mt. Holly, New Jersey, said Lower Bucks County could see 6 to 8 inches of snow Sunday into Monday, they noted there was still some uncertainty that sleet and rain could mix in and tamp down accumulation.

“Do not focus solely on snowfall totals. High snowfall rates will result in rapid deterioration of road conditions,” they warned in a Sunday morning briefing for the public and emergency planners.

The storm is expected to move over the area Sunday afternoon, while the heaviest snowfall is expected to fall between 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday.

Forecasters have called for snow to tapper off Monday morning.

All of Bucks County and the bordering counties have been placed under a Winter Storm Warning.
