First Call Snowfall Forecast For Tuesday’s Major Winter Storm

We are now under 60 hours away from a major winter storm that will impact the area Monday Night into Tuesday. This storm will likely go down as one of the top March snowstorms on record across the Northeast. There is no doubt that the storm is coming, at this point we are just trying to narrow down the track and as of this evening, there is quite a bit of spread. For our first call snow map, we generally took a blend of all the guidance we look at, not favoring one over the other, instead took a middle…MORE...

First Call Snow Forecast Thursday Night into Friday Morning

We are tracking a weak area of low pressure that will develop to our west and take a path just south of our state, putting most, if not all areas, on the cold side of the storm. This will lead to a light to moderate snowfall for many during the Thursday Night and Friday Morning time period. Snow will develop across much of PA by Midnight Friday Morning. We will have to keep a close eye on southern pa’s temperatures, as warmer temperatures may allow for rain to mix in with the snowfall, or may prohibit snow from accumulating. Below…MORE...

Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Capable of Damaging Winds Possible Tomorrow

While many of us are enjoying the abnormally warm weather for this time of year, we are tracking a potent cold front that will be pushing across the state during the day Tomorrow. It currently stands that Central and Eastern PA will have a more likely chance of experiencing these strong to severe storms Tomorrow due to it occurring later in the day. Western PA will be first to be hit by the cold front, anywhere between 5 AM and 8 AM, this will lead to downpours and possibly a rumble of thunder. Because it is occurring early in the morning…MORE...

Final Call for Significant Winter Storm Tonight into Tomorrow Morning

A significant snowstorm is less than 12 hours away from impacting the area. Temperatures across the state are currently in the 30s and 40s for the northwest half of the state and 40s and 50s for the southeast half of the state. Temperatures will continue to drop throughout the evening hours as a cold front passes through the state setting the stage for a significant snowstorm.

First Call for Significant Winter Storm Wednesday Night into Thursday

We are now under 30 hours away from a significant winter storm impacting regions of the state that have so far had little snowfall. Winter Storm watches are currently being hoisted across eastern pa and just about all of south-central pa.

Final Call Forecast for Monday’s Powerful Nor’easter

We are now within 12-24 hours before the region feels the impacts from Tomorrow’s Nor’easter. Winter Storm Watches have been issued for Northcentral and Northeastern PA with Wind Advisories in Southeast PA. Guidance has trended colder since our first call last night.

To all those weather enthusiasts out there, sit back and enjoy this storm. The radar will be lit up Tomorrow Afternoon and Evening with just about every…MORE...

First Call Forecast For Monday’s Nor’easter

Significant Snow & Rainstorm Possible Monday

After a stretch of mild weather, we are tracking a potent coastal storm that will be impacting our weather in a big way come Sunday Night and into Monday Night. Over the last several days, Josh and I have been tracking this system and even though model guidance continued to show an all rainstorm, we discussed between ourselves the potential for this to turn on somewhat snowy. And sure enough, here we are a couple days later and model guidance has finally caught onto our ideas of a rain and snowstorm. The current path this system is projected to take…MORE...

First Call Forecast for Saturday’s Light Snowfall

Impressive for the middle of January to say the least.

With that said, we have upgraded and pushed our zones farther Northwest into PA from our previous call last night.
