Also, learn a winter craft, practice your conversational Italian or become a volunteer driver.

And now for something completely different … the National Weather Service is calling for a chance of snow showers on Monday morning.

Yep, the relentless winter continues this week, though the good news is that—after Monday—the forecast looks snow free until Saturday, anyway.

The bad news is that there seems to be no relief in sight in terms of temperatures, which the weather service advises could lead to increasing and thickening river ice, which could cause jams, which could cause flooding.

After a relatively reasonable high of 31 degrees Monday, the temperature will fall and the wind will accelerate to gusts as high as 33 mph, producing wind chills of about -10 overnight.

On Tuesday, the high temperature is expected to be 16, with a wind chill of -14.

Here’s what else is happening in South Whitehall this week:

  • The Parkland School Board meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the administration building on Springhouse Road.
  • Join artist and author Kim McDougall-Chatel to create a winter craft with wool and needle felting at the Parkland Community Library at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Limit of 12 participants. Please RSVP.
  • Come to the Trivet Diner at 9 a.m. Thursday for an information session on the Independent Transportation Network Lehigh Valley. ITN is a new volunteer-based, nonprofit transportation service for seniors 60 and older and visually impaired adults. As a volunteer driver for ITNLehighValley you choose when, where and how often you’d like to drive.  In addition to meeting some great people, you will earn ride credits for your own, a loved one, or a low-income rider’s transportation needs.
  • The Parkland Community Library hosts an educational session on getting your kids to eat healthy at 6 p.m. Thursday. Certified Holistic Health & Wellness Coach Christina Moyes from One Body Wellness will be speaking. Please RSVP.
  • Would you like to refresh or practice your conversational Italian? Chat with native speaker Rita during this session at the Parkland Community Library at 7 p.m. Thursday. Please RSVP.
