As we grow closer to this storm, certainty is going up as well. Although there is still some uncertainty in the forecast, we feel confident in our prediction. This update will focus on timing as well as snowfall amounts for this storm.
Light snow will move into Western PA Monday Afternoon, spreading into Central PA by Monday Evening. There could be a few rain showers mixed in initially in Southcentral PA. Monday Night will feature light snow across Western PA with moderate snow in the Laurel Highlands, through Southcentral PA. Snow showers will also make their way into Eastern PA Late Monday Night.
Tuesday Morning will bring the best of the snowfall to Southern PA as moderate snow continues caused by an inverted trough setting up over the area. This will produce an area of moderate snow that will be very slow moving. Light to moderate snow is likely to continue into Tuesday afternoon in Southern PA as light snow is likely in Eastern PA, back to Western PA.
By Wednesday Morning snow will finish up across all areas of PA with the exception of the Laurel Highlands and NW PA, where lake effect snow will persist.
We expect the area impacted by the inverted trough to receive the highest totals, which will likely be from the Laurel Highlands in through Southcentral PA and the Lower Susquehanna Valley. Lighter snow amounts are expected through Western and Northern PA extending into Eastern PA.
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!
