Although this storm will be primarily rain in our area, parts of Michigan and Indiana are in-store for over a foot of heavy wet snow. We will escape the majority of impacts, however light snow and freezing rain Tuesday could make travel slippery especially considering not many people will be prepared.
Light snow from a coastal system will move into the state from south to north Tuesday Morning and Afternoon. However, snow will only last about 2 to 4 hours before changing over to rain. There is the potential for cold air damming to provide a few more hours of freezing temperatures at the surface in parts of PA, bringing the possibility of a glaze of ice. Also, we expect higher elevations to hang onto the snow for around 4-6 hours with anywhere from one to three inches of snow expected.
By Wednesday rain will move into the area, washing away any snow that does fall. We expect around an inch of rainfall state-wide. There is even the threat of severe thunderstorms as close as Maryland!
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!
