Thanksgiving Week to Bring Cold Air, Raised Snow Possibilities

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 19 seconds

This Fall has been on the warm side across much of the United States. Many areas of Pennsylvania hae yet to see their first flakes. However, a pattern change has been rumored for several weeks now. While the long range remains somewhat uncertain, Thanksgiving Week will be chilly. Is that it, just chilly?

Highs are likely to be in 30s and 40s state-wide next week. In addition, there will be one, possibly two systems that move near the area. At this point we are looking at a system that would impact the region Sunday Morning into Monday Morning and possibly an event on Thanksgiving Day.

Right now all eyes are on the first event especially due to recent models. This Afternoon’s Euro Model indicated a low pressure just west of Lake Erie transferring to a secondary low pressure off the New Jersey Coast which resulted in much of the state receiving precipitation with temperatures near freezing. However, this is only one run. We need to see consistency before buying into any certain solution.

The American Model is similar in some ways but benefits north of the state much more. The coastal low pressure develops off the New England Coast, generating precipitation mainly in the form of snow for Northern PA and Upstate New York.

The Thanksgiving Event is still too far out to get into any details.

Stay tuned to our Facebook Page Pennsylvania Weather Action for rapid updates leading up to not only this event but all in the upcoming Winter Season! Also if you’re a snow fan don’t forget to share this below!

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!
