Final Call Snowfall Forecast For Friday Morning’s Snow

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 51 seconds

We hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful Thursday afternoon because the weather is about to change…fast. From temperatures in the 50s and 60s, to accumulating snow within a 12 hour period is pretty impressive and that is exactly what we are anticipating going into the overnight hours.

Because surface temperatures are so warm, especially for our southern counties, precipitation may start off as some rain showers, before transitioning to snow. Below is the GFS showing a push of rain and snow into the area by 10 PM tonight: 

After midnight, most areas will be experiencing some steady wet snow, with some areas still hanging onto the rain showers along the mason/dixon line. When we take the same model out to 4 AM Tomorrow Morning, we have a state-wide light to moderate snowfall:

This particular model is likely a bit too warm at 4 AM. We expect all areas to be snowing at this point. The snow will continue through 7 AM before tapering off by 10 AM for all locations.


Our most notable change in our final forecast is the extension of zone B farther south, other than that only minor adjustments were made.

Timing: Precip will arrive between 9 PM and Midnight. Steady snow for most after midnight and will begin to taper off by 10 AM. Friday Morning commute will be treacherous especially for areas in A and B. 


Area A: 4 to 6 inches of snowfall is expected. Hazardous travel conditions are expected Friday Morning. 

Area B: 2 to 4 inches of snowfall is expected. Travel delays are expected for the Friday Morning commute. 

Area C: 1 to 2 inches of snowfall is expected. Travel delays are possible depending how hard the snow is falling. This region will have a tough time accumulating snow on paved surfaces if the snow remains light. Most accumulations will be on grassy surfaces.

Area D: A coating to 1 inch of snowfall is expected.

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!
