For those that are unaware of what a solar eclipse is, it is when the moon passes between the sun and earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to 3 hours. 38 years ago in 1979, was the last time the United States experienced a total solar eclipse. Unfortunately, the path of totality is not very wide, in fact, only about 70 or miles. For those areas that are in the path of totality, the daytime sky will immediately go to nighttime for about a couple minutes on Monday, the 21st of this month. Below is…MORE...
After the past couple days of dry and mostly sunny weather, we have our eyes turned to the weekend as a low pressure system will track just south of Pennsylvania during the day Friday and will transfer its energy to the coast Friday night. This coastal low will enhance precipitation across the state overnight Friday into Saturday morning. Below is our futurecast radar valid for 5:00 PM Friday and 8:00 PM Friday evening: PREDICTED RAINFALL TOTALS FRIDAY PM THROUGH SATURDAY PM: Timeline: Rainfall will begin from west to east beginning lunchtime Friday, lasting through the early morning hours of Saturday.…MORE...
After another hot and humid day, we are tracking another round of severe weather expected for the state tomorrow and on top of it, some areas may even experience warmer temperatures than today! The primary severe weather threat is expected to arrive later in the day tomorrow, likely after 6 PM for our northwestern counties and will slowly drift southeastward throughout the remaining evening hours. As it does so, it is anticipated that the storms will weaken and eventually fall apart. Because of this many areas south and east of I-81 will remain dry tomorrow. Below is our short term…MORE...
As we start off our workweek, we are tracking severe weather that is possible mainly in the afternoon and evening hours today. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed many areas under a SLIGHT RISK and MARGINAL RISK for severe weather. As it stands right now, northeast pa has the best chance of experiencing severe weather. Below is our future simulated radar using one of our short term models from 1 pm through midnight. The bulk of the action looks like it will develop after 3 PM and should begin to fall apart after 8 PM. Make sure you click…MORE...
Keep an eye to the sky tonight and early parts of tomorrow morning as our state, as well as the rest of the Northeast is under a Geomagnetic Storm Watch. On Friday, a massive sunspot erupted on the sun, which created what scientists call a “coronal mass ejection” and is headed straight for our planet tonight. This means some us could see quite the spectacular show later tonight and early tomorrow morning! The National Weather Service has created a graphic (below) indicating what areas are more likely to see the Northern Lights. Pennsylvania is on the southern extent of areas…MORE...
After a cool May, many people have been questioning when will sustained summer-like weather officially begin? We are happy to say a sustained period of warmer than normal temperatures will begin Sunday and last through at least next Thursday. Beyond that is too far out to say with much confidence that we see above/below normal temps. Below is a look at our current pattern: A persistent ridge out west has led to a trough in the east, resulting in a lot of cool and damp days across our state. As we head into the weekend, a rather quick pattern change…MORE...
Over the last 24 hours since our first call, guidance has trended more aggressive in terms of snow amounts for much of state Monday Night into Tuesday. The closer we get to impact, the more confidence we are having that this will go down as one of the largest March snowstorms in recorded history. We will take a look at the NAM model to breakdown the timing. Snow will begin to overspread the area from south to north between 9 PM Monday through midnight Tuesday, below is the NAM valid 11 PM Monday night:  By 2 AM Tuesday Morning much…MORE...
We are now under 60 hours away from a major winter storm that will impact the area Monday Night into Tuesday. This storm will likely go down as one of the top March snowstorms on record across the Northeast. There is no doubt that the storm is coming, at this point we are just trying to narrow down the track and as of this evening, there is quite a bit of spread. For our first call snow map, we generally took a blend of all the guidance we look at, not favoring one over the other, instead took a middle…MORE...
OUR FIRST CALL SNOWFALL FORECAST HAS BEEN RELEASED >>> CLICK HERE TO VIEW On March 14th, 1993, one of the largest winter storms ever recorded decimated much of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Now, 24 years later, a major storm will likely impact many of the same areas late Monday Night into Tuesday. We are now confident enough to say a storm is likely to hit the area Monday Night into Tuesday. At this point, it simply comes down to the track this storm will take. An area of low pressure will be dropping out of the Midwest and dig just…MORE...
We hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful Thursday afternoon because the weather is about to change…fast. From temperatures in the 50s and 60s, to accumulating snow within a 12 hour period is pretty impressive and that is exactly what we are anticipating going into the overnight hours. Because surface temperatures are so warm, especially for our southern counties, precipitation may start off as some rain showers, before transitioning to snow. Below is the GFS showing a push of rain and snow into the area by 10 PM tonight:  After midnight, most areas will be experiencing some steady wet snow, with…MORE...
We are tracking a weak area of low pressure that will develop to our west and take a path just south of our state, putting most, if not all areas, on the cold side of the storm. This will lead to a light to moderate snowfall for many during the Thursday Night and Friday Morning time period. Snow will develop across much of PA by Midnight Friday Morning. We will have to keep a close eye on southern pa’s temperatures, as warmer temperatures may allow for rain to mix in with the snowfall, or may prohibit snow from accumulating. Below…MORE...
While many of us are enjoying the abnormally warm weather for this time of year, we are tracking a potent cold front that will be pushing across the state during the day Tomorrow. It currently stands that Central and Eastern PA will have a more likely chance of experiencing these strong to severe storms Tomorrow due to it occurring later in the day. Western PA will be first to be hit by the cold front, anywhere between 5 AM and 8 AM, this will lead to downpours and possibly a rumble of thunder. Because it is occurring early in the morning…MORE...
A significant snowstorm is less than 12 hours away from impacting the area. Temperatures across the state are currently in the 30s and 40s for the northwest half of the state and 40s and 50s for the southeast half of the state. Temperatures will continue to drop throughout the evening hours as a cold front passes through the state setting the stage for a significant snowstorm. Latest trends have been suggesting heavier precip and a bit farther northwest, which could lead to a warmer start for far southern pa and the result of that would be a longer period of…MORE...
We are now under 30 hours away from a significant winter storm impacting regions of the state that have so far had little snowfall. Winter Storm watches are currently being hoisted across eastern pa and just about all of south-central pa. This will be our largest winter storm of the season so far, given how many of us will be impacted by a significant amount of snow. The trend over the last 24 hours with guidance has leaned pretty similar to our #1 scenario last night. However, guidance has trended wetter (snowier) and also a stronger system in general. For…MORE...
We are now within 12-24 hours before the region feels the impacts from Tomorrow’s Nor’easter. Winter Storm Watches have been issued for Northcentral and Northeastern PA with Wind Advisories in Southeast PA. Guidance has trended colder since our first call last night. This puts many more locations under the gun for a changeover to sleet and/or wet snow later in the day Monday as the Nor’easter begins to really crank off the coast. To all those weather enthusiasts out there, sit back and enjoy this storm. The radar will be lit up Tomorrow Afternoon and Evening with just about every…MORE...
