Winter Storm

After a rather warm day across PA Today, it is almost hard to believe in a couple days we will be dealing with a Winter Storm impacting us on Thursday. As we mentioned yesterday, we are watching two areas of low pressure systems this week that will lead to our Winter Storm on Thursday. One will be dropping out of Canada in the form of a weak clipper system, while another area of low pressure develops in the south and eventually heads northeast. Where these two systems merge off the coast on Thursday, will determine how much snow we end…MORE...
Here we are a little under 48 hours away from our next Winter Storm and model guidance is still all over the place across Pennsylvania for who receives what and how much. But, as weather forecasters, this is one of the many challenges we face quite often and we will give you the forecast the way we see it. With that being said, we are confident that overrunning snow showers will overspread the state during the day Sunday which is well represented by latest NAM model valid 7 AM Sunday Morning:  As the day progresses Sunday, it is quite possible…MORE...
Before we get into the details about Tuesday Evening into Wednesday, a disturbance is still projected to move through the state Tonight and into Tomorrow Morning bringing with it a mix of rain and snow. Our call from last night still stands with this system. If you missed our call, click here>>>http://paweatheraction.com/light-snow-sunday-night-wintry-mix-arrives-mid-week As for the bigger storm potential, we are tracking a Winter Storm set to begin Tuesday Evening and lasting through Wednesday Morning. A low pressure system will develop in the South and track its way Northward before transferring its energy into a coastal low. Over the last 36-48…MORE...
What we thought originally was going to be a sheared out system for Monday, now looks like it will be a snow maker for some, and a rain/snow mix for others beginning late Sunday Night into Monday. Then behind that system, we are tracking a larger storm as we mentioned yesterday, that could produce a more significant amount of rain and/or snow for many areas. First off below is the latest GFS valid 1 AM Monday Morning: Temperatures will be very marginal, so for lower elevations, this might just be a cold rain for you. But areas that do receive…MORE...
Our final snow forecast needed some slight adjustments, mainly to upgrade snow totals over the Laurel Highlands. Currently as of 3 PM the cold front is centered right over Central PA splitting PA in half of two different seasons. Spring in the East and Winter in the West! The cold front will continue to push East, packing a very cold punch along with rain showers changing to snow showers the further West you go. Area A – 6 to 10 inches of snowfall, with isolated amounts up to a foot possible. Blizzard like conditions will be felt at times with…MORE...
Hope you all are enjoying the warm weather while it lasts because we are narrowing in on the details of this season’s first widespread snowfall beginning Tomorrow Afternoon and lasting through Monday. Do not let Tomorrow’s early on temperatures fool you, as it will be very warm to start your day off on your Saturday. Here are the projected temperatures for 2 PM Saturday Afternoon: A very strong cold front is splitting the state about in half. Temperatures ahead of this front will likely reach the mid to upper 60s in many locations. But looking out behind the front, you…MORE...
After what will be a warm Friday and Saturday, it will be hard to believe our first widespread snow event of the year will arrive late Saturday Evening and continue through Sunday and even into some of your Monday especially for Northern areas. A cold front will sleep through the area during the day Saturday, dropping temperatures from 50s and 60s in the early part of the day, to 30s and 40s by the evening hours. From here, it is expected that a low pressure system develops along the front once it reaches the coastline, which will then allow for…MORE...
THIS FORECAST HAS BEEN UPDATED. CLICK HERE FOR WEDNESDAY’S UPDATE. -Pennsylvania Weather Action Lead Forecaster Josh Adams   We are currently tracking our first potential Winter Storm of the season, that will arrive late Saturday Evening and will last through Sunday. The potential storm system is roughly 100 hours away from impact and there is big time disagreement with our current guidance. Breakdown: A low pressure system will be cutting through the Great Lakes region late this week and will have a trailing cold front along with it. The cold front is our main focus. As we head into the day…MORE...
FIRST CALL FOR TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY’S STORM, TIMING & AMOUNTS INCLUDED As we mentioned yesterday, the Winter Storm threat to the state that will be impacting us late Tuesday into Wednesday, will be a rain maker for most locations. However, Northwest PA and the Laurel Highlands will have a chance at seeing accumulating snowfall. A low pressure will gather its energy and slowly strengthen over Southern Ohio before tracking through Central PA. Unfortunately, for snow lovers, this puts most of us on the warm side of the low pressure system. As this low pressure heads off toward the Northeast, it will begin to rapidly strengthen and deliver a much more significant…MORE...
