The dramatic realization has arrived. Summer is done, and the chill of Fall is setting in. Average first freeze dates range from Early October in the Northern PA and Allegheny Mountain Ranges to mid-November in Philadelphia.

A trough will plunge into the Eastern US this weekend, not only bringing cold air but also kicking Matthew right off the Carolina Coast. Freeze warnings are up across the Central and Northern Plains, and even light snowfall is taking place in areas like Western Nebraska.

The worst of the cold will reach PA Sunday Night. Lows are likely to drop down into the 30s throughout Western and Central PA, with temperatures near freezing in locations across Northwestern PA, down into the highest elevations of Somerset County in SW-PA. This will put an end to the growing season in regions that dip below 35.

Monday Night, the brunt of the cold moves into Central and Eastern PA. Hundreds of thousands of people will be waking up to temperatures in the 30s Tuesday Morning. A freeze is likely in areas above 1200′ in the Central and Northern Poconos with a frost possible or likely throughout many other areas.

Thank you for reading this forecast and don’t forget to share the chill of the season below!

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!
