Chilly Start to Labor Day Weekend As Early Fall Looms

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 2 seconds

Friday is the first day of September, and the first day of Meteorological Fall. Temperatures have been cooler than normal for a week straight, and this looks to only be the beginning. This time last year, temperatures were soaring into the 80s and 90s well into September. This year however, temperatures look to stay below normal for at least the first three weeks of September.

Forecast lows for Thursday Night and Friday Night are downright cold. The northern tier of PA will drop into the upper 30s, while the rest of the state lowers into the 40s. Pittsburgh and Philadelphia Regions will bottom out in the low 50s partly due to the urban heat island effect.

High temperatures Saturday won’t be on the warm side either. Rain from the remnants of Harvey partnered with a trough will limit temperatures across much of PA to the upper 50s as highs. Some areas will make it into the 60s.

We will be releasing our first Fall Foliage map of 2017 on Saturday! Also, our Fall 2017 Weather Outlook will be issued on Tuesday. Be sure to have us liked to see these updates >>> PA Weather Action on facebook!

Hello, my name is Josh Adams. This year I am a junior in high school in South Central PA. I have had a passion for weather since I was five or six years old, watching the Weather Channel when the average kid my age was watching cartoons. At age 11, I discovered that there is a significant amount of weather info online from knowledgeable meteorologists to weather models and everything in between. I had the privilege to take part in a group that held informational weather discussions nearly everyday. I gained a significant amount of knowledge in several months back in 2012, constantly studying meteorology for hours each and just about every day. I created Northeast Weather Action in early 2013, just after the previous winter had ended. Things were pretty slow to start, however the winter of 2013-2014 greatly helped grow the page. Several of my forecasts verified nicely across the area. I met Chris during that winter in a facebook group, and we talked often about anticipated weather events. Just before the start of the 2014-2015 Winter, I added Chris to Northeast Weather Action (now Pennsylvania Weather Action), and once again we hit several key forecasts. Chris and I are looking forward to giving you the most up to date and reliable forecasts!
