Estimated reading time:2 minutes, 2 seconds

Two separate winter weather events are likely in the coming days, before temperatures drop Friday (Dec 9th). There is a good chance that a winter storm with widespread impacts will take place sometime between December 9th and December 17th. However as mentioned we have two events incoming just in the next several days.

The first event arrives Sunday Evening, leaving Monday Morning. A clipper-like system will move through the region resulting in light rain and snow.


Area A: Light snow will move in Sunday Evening from west to east, exiting from west to east as well Monday Morning. About 1-2″ of snowfall accumulation expected, with up to 3″ above 2,000′ elevation. If not salted, roadways may be snow coated or covered.

Area B: Light rain at the onset of precipitation will Sunday Evening will change to snow after 10 PM, lasting through Monday Morning when snowfall will move out from west to east. A coating to an inch of snowfall accumulation is expected with scattered amounts of up to 2″ above 2,000′ elevation.

Area C: Light rain at the onset of precipitation will lead to a change-over to snow late Sunday Evening into Early Monday Morning before changing back over to rain. A coating of snowfall is possible but will be melted by rainfall. Areas above 1,800′ may receive up to an inch of snowfall.


The second event arrives Tuesday, lasting into Wednesday. Here is the current prediction for that event.


Area A: Snow will move in Tuesday Evening, continuing through the night and into Wednesday Morning. A change-over to rain is possible at the end of the event Wednesday Afternoon. However by then only light precipitation will remain. Moderate snowfall accumulation possible.

Area B: Snow will move in Tuesday Evening, lasting into the pre-dawn hours of Wednesday before changing over to rain. Light to moderate snowfall accumulation possible.

Area C: Precipitation will enter the area Tuesday Evening likely as snow. Snow will persist for several hours before changing over to rain a few hours before sunrise Wednesday. Light snowfall accumulation possible.


Confidence is higher for the event Sunday Evening into Monday Morning as you would expect. As mentioned, the next two weeks will be very active weather-wise so be sure to have Pennsylvania Weather Action liked on facebook by clicking. Also be sure to share this forecast below with your friends and family. Stay safe!

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!
