Second Call Snowfall Forecast For Friday Morning’s Snow

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 26 seconds

A strong cold front moving through Thursday will be followed by a fast moving wave of snow Friday Morning.

Snow will move into Southwestern and West Central PA by around 12 AM Friday. Here is the NAM Model Radar Forecast for 1 AM Friday. At this point, snow will be accumulating mainly on grassy surfaces.

However as the night goes on and ground surfaces continue to cool, slushy snow will likely begin to accumulate on the roads mainly in areas receiving moderate snow rates. Below is the NAM Model Radar Forecast for 7 AM Friday.

Snow is expected to end before the morning commute in Western PA. However, in Southcentral and Southeastern PA, snow will continue to fall at moderate rates. Travel is expected to be impacted in those areas Friday Morning.

Keep in mind while an inch of slushy snow on the roads doesn’t sound like much, most accidents that occur happen with under two inches of snow on the road.


Area A: The Laurel Highlands and parts of the Pocono Mountains are included in this category. 4-6″ of snow is expected, causing hazardous travel Friday Morning.

Area B: 2 to 4 inches of snowfall is expected. Travel delays expected during the Friday Morning rush.

Area C: 1 to 2 inches of snowfall is expected. Travel delays possible especially in Southern PA, where the heaviest snow of the event will be falling during the morning rush.

Area D: A Coating to 1 inch is expected.

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!
