A mix of rain and snow showers will move into Western PA by noon today. By evening, snow showers will make their way into Central PA as light snow falls across Western PA. Heading into tonight, light to moderate snow will overtake the southern half of the state, with moderate snow by Tuesday Morning throughout the Laurel Highlands on into the Susquehanna Valley. In addition, light snow will begin in Eastern PA Tuesday Morning.
As we work our way into Late Tuesday Morning and into the afternoon, there could be a lull in the snow in some areas. However by mid-afternoon snow will fill back in from west to east, especially in Southern PA. Light to moderate snow will then continue in Central and Eastern PA Tuesday Evening as precipitation begins to wrap up in Western PA. By Wednesday Morning snowfall will be over everywhere with some left over lake effect snow showers in NW PA.
It is likely that an inverted trough sets up in Southcentral PA into the Lower Susquehanna Valley, which is an area of moderate snow that will be very slow moving. It all depends on just how slow moving and persistent this band of snow will be, but there is the potential for above 7″ in localized areas within the outlined dashed region.
We don’t expect any extremely heavy bands of snow, but more of a long lasting moderate band type deal in the areas most heavily impacted as indicated on our map. Furthermore, we anticipate the Tuesday Morning and Evening Commute to be affected about equally, however Tuesday Morning could be slightly worse for Southwestern to Southcentral PA.

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!
