What Weather Will the Remainder of October Bring to PA?

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 2 seconds

October is a month consisting of rapidly dropping temperatures. October 1st, average highs are in the low 60s to low 70s. October 31st, highs average only in the upper 40s and 50s. Some years are different than others of course. In 2011, a winter storm moved through the region just before Halloween, blanketing much of the state with over a half foot of snow. So what will the rest of October bring us this year?

Temperature swings will likely continue into mid and late October. Below average temperatures will dominate the upcoming week with the exception of Thursday. Lows Sunday and Monday Night will dip down near freezing in parts of the state. The following week beginning the 16th, ridging will likely occur resulting in above average temperatures potentially lasting the entire week.

The last week of October does look on the chilly side at this point. With that said, it’s difficult to accurately predict what will occur. There is the potential for widespread freezes and possibly even first flakes of the season in mountainous regions of PA the final week of October. The most important word of that sentence is potential.

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!
