As many of you may have heard by now, we are expecting some snowfall Thursday Evening into Friday Morning across the area. Many wondered how, considering on Tuesday it was 60, but the magic of a cold front is upon us. Here is the timing and details.
Snow will move into Western PA late Thursday Afternoon and by mid-evening it will begin to reach many locations throughout Central PA. It will then reach Eastern PA after midnight. The snow will be light to moderate in rate as it falls but with the ground refreezing and the majority of snowfall occurring at night, we do expect deteriorated road conditions Friday Morning.
By mid-morning Friday the snow will begin to exit Western PA, still persisting in Central and Eastern Pennsylvania. Just before noon, snow will begin to move out of Central PA and by mid-afternoon Eastern PA should be done. This will not be a major storm in any way, but as stated it will still impact travel Friday.
Anywhere from <1 – 2″ of snow is likely in many areas across the northern two-thirds of the state with 2-4″ of snowfall in the majority of Southern PA. By next week, this will all be a memory and temperatures in the 60s will start to breakout.
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!
