When we first discussed this storm on Tuesday, we mentioned a 100 or 200 mile shift in storm track would make all the difference for Pennsylvania. By Wednesday and Thursday models such as the Euro (which has the highest verification score) shifted west and slammed Pennsylvania for several runs straight. By Friday, modeling indicated the storm would be farther east as originally modeled back on Tuesday, and that the bulk of this system would miss Pennsylvania and even New England. Now, recent runs have moved enough west to bury New England and Long Island but miss PA.
Snow will begin in Southern New Jersey and Long Island Sunday Evening before intensifying and moving into Southeast New England Sunday Night. By Monday Morning snow will be over in New Jersey and finishing up in Long Island. As you head into areas such as Boston, snow will continue into Early Monday Afternoon before ending. The heaviest snow will fall in Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island where as much as a foot of snow could fall. Even locations such as Hartford, CT, Worcester, MA, and Portland, ME will receive 4-6″ of snow.
Roadways will be most significantly impacted across Eastern Massachusetts, Eastern Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Down-east Maine. In these areas travel will be hazardous Monday.

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!
