With a blizzard slamming the Great Plains and strong tornadoes in the Southeast, we are next to be impacted by this system. We will not see any severe weather but moderate rain which could lead to localized flooding will be possible Wednesday. Between .50-1″ of rain is likely in the western half of the state. The eastern half can expect between .75″ – 1.25″ of rain. Here is our latest Future Radar, indicating the rain will move west to east across PA as the day progresses.
Continuing on, flooding will be a concern especially in areas still melting away snow-pack. Several creeks in Southern PA will reach “Action Stage,” but we don’t anticipate any significant flooding. Below is the latest flood watch map.
A cold front will sweep through Thursday, bringing temperatures back to where they should be for this time of year. This weekend should be mainly dry, but we continue to watch the potential for a winter storm early to mid next week. Here are the projected highs for Friday.
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!
