The past several weeks have brought nothing but abundant warmth. Temperatures have reached the 60s and even low 70s across much of PA both Saturday and Sunday. But we knew that at some point winter had to show up.
A deep trough will move into the Eastern US late this week and by Saturday highs in the 30s will be present throughout the entire state. This will continue into Sunday, through next Monday.
Lake effect snow bands will likely setup in Northwestern Pennsylvania next weekend as heavy westerly winds blow over Lake Erie. At this time we do not expect significant snow accumulations but light to moderate snowfall is definitely not out of the question. Stay tuned!
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!
