First Call Snowfall Forecast For Saturday – Monday Winter Weather Event

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 21 seconds

After what will be a warm Friday and Saturday, it will be hard to believe our first widespread snow event of the year will arrive late Saturday Evening and continue through Sunday and even into some of your Monday especially for Northern areas.

A cold front will sleep through the area during the day Saturday, dropping temperatures from 50s and 60s in the early part of the day, to 30s and 40s by the evening hours. From here, it is expected that a low pressure system develops along the front once it reaches the coastline, which will then allow for winds to pick up from the North and Northwest. Combination of gusty winds and warm lakes, will result in our first widespread snow showers and Lake Effect snows.

Below is the latest NAM model valid Sunday Afternoon: namconus_ref_frzn_neus_47
Timing: It will start in the late afternoon hours Saturday and will continue through Sunday and into Monday for Northern parts of PA.

Our first call is below: Don’t forget to “like” us on Facebook for further updates>>>>PA Weather Action on Facebook!

 

Areas in the 4-7″+ range have the potential of receiving more if persistent heavy lake effect snow bands set up. Areas in the light blue can just expect some possible snow showers, with little to no accumulation.

Most areas will only receive accumulation on grassy surfaces with the exception of areas in the red and pink where if the snow is coming down hard enough, it will have no problem sticking to paved surfaces.

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!
