AREA  A – A short period of snow could break out Mid-Monday Evening, only accumulating to at most an inch. Precipitation type will then switch to sleet for a few hours before Midnight Tuesday and potentially lasting until 2am, followed by an extended period of moderate to heavy freezing rain lasting through the night into Mid-Tuesday Morning. Ice accretion between .2″-.4″ is anticipated, and the melting process will likely last into Wednesday. Traveling will be near impossible Tuesday and scattered power outages are likely.

AREA  B – Sleet pellets are likely as the storm moves in Monday Evening before precipitation type quickly changes over to Freezing rain about Mid-Monday Evening. Freezing rain will continue through about just after midnight before temperatures rise above freezing. Ice accretion between .1″-.25″ is anticipated. Some melting will take place but icy conditions will likely stick around into Tuesday until about noon causing rough and potentially hazardous traveling conditions. Isolated power outages are likely.

AREA  C – A period of freezing rain is likely Monday Evening before turning to plain rain just before midnight. Ice accretion between .05-.15″ is anticipated, however much of it will melt after temperatures rise above freezing early Tuesday Morning.

AREA  D – All rain is likely.

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!
