Estimated reading time:0 minutes, 51 seconds

As the title indicates, a significant multi-day lake effect snow event is likely in Northwest PA. Snow will begin Thursday, intensifying Friday. By Saturday lake effect banding will begin to diminish.

Most persistent lake effect snow bands will likely be in Erie, Crawford and Warren Counties. Snowfall amounts could reach two feet in areas shaded in red on our forecast map below. Locations such as Erie will receive around 7-10″ total, as will Warren. Meadville will see 8-12″ of snow.

Sunday will feature precipitation, but there is a great deal of disagreement in the models. There is a good chance of wintry precipitation, but that’s about all we know at this point. Even the severity of the event remains largely up in the air.

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!
