First Total Solar Eclipse Since 1979 to Occur August 21st

For those that are unaware of what a solar eclipse is, it is when the moon passes between the sun and earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to 3 hours. 38 years ago in 1979, was the last time the United States experienced a total solar eclipse. Unfortunately, the path of totality is not very wide, in fact, only about 70 or miles. For those areas that are in the path of totality, the daytime sky will immediately go to nighttime for about a couple minutes on Monday, the 21st of this month. Below is…MORE...

Parts of PA to see Northern Lights Tonight into Tomorrow Morning

Keep an eye to the sky tonight and early parts of tomorrow morning as our state, as well as the rest of the Northeast is under a Geomagnetic Storm Watch.

This means some us could see quite the spectacular show later tonight and early tomorrow morning!

First Significant Heat Wave of the Season Begins Sunday

After a cool May, many people have been questioning when will sustained summer-like weather officially begin?

As we head into the weekend, a rather quick pattern change…MORE...

Heavy Rain Thursday Turns into Accumulating Snow for Some on Friday

A potent storm system will be making large impacts to our weather starting tomorrow and lasting through Friday. Heavy rain is expected tomorrow, especially for the eastern half of the state. As the storm system passes to our north, winds will change to a cold northwest flow, this will allow for any rain showers to change to snow showers for areas in western pa on Friday and even accumulating snow for some areas.
