Potent Winter Storm Likely Sunday Evening Into Monday, Varying Impacts

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 39 seconds

With temperatures plunging tonight, wind chills in the teens are likely Friday Morning. Well below average temperatures will continue into the weekend with highs only in the 20s and 30s expected both Saturday and Sunday. At the same time, a low pressure system will develop in the Great Plains, moving east through the weekend. There continues to be some model disagreement. With that said, one solution appears to be emerging.

Impacts across the state will undoubted vary. However, much more of the state will get in on the winter weather action. This time, we don’t just a few hours of sleet. Some areas could see over a half foot of snow, while others will encounter much less. Snowfall amounts remain unknown at this time.

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!
