Today, the commonwealth will see seemingly warm temperatures across the majority of the state. In some places, the temperatures could reach nearly 60-degrees! In addition to the amazing sun, we will see some gust winds, upto 15+ MPH. But no worries, we have ZERO advisories put into place and we are not in a SPC outlook as of now.\ If you see above, we are tracking two storms, both very different. The top one (larger) in Sioux City, is a snow and ice maker. It’s moving it’s way near the great lakes. Whereas the storm near Springfield, is a tornado-proned storm that will be damaging areas such as Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama,

August 21, 2017 Eclipse Day! No human action can disrupt the incessant dance of the cosmos, and the Moon’s shadow will not wait on you if you’re not ready. Like a mindless juggernaut, it plows its way through space toward a collision course with Earth. As predicted by the astronomers decades in advance, the shadow arrives with perfect accuracy, and touches down in the north Pacific Ocean at 16:48:33 UT*, at local sunrise. (At that spot, the Sun will actually rise while totally eclipsed. This is a sight few people – even veteran eclipse chasers – have seen, and from what we hear, it is quite uncanny.) A minute later, the

Welcome to March 20th, where the first day of spring has sprung! As the story goes, April showers bring May flowers. This will be the case, as we are tracking a large rain-system about to move in! As we take a look at the water-vapor, we can see a large rain-wrapped severe storm in the center (below) Included is what the national radar looks like as well. We do notice the Storm Prediction Center does have south-western Pennsylvania in a Day 1 Outlook for Thunderstorms. The temperatures are warmer than usual today.

Lake effect snow is going to effect Western Pennsylvania through Central Pennsylvania Wednesday night. Lake Erie is the cause of Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania lake effect snow, but, due to the bust we had on the “blizzard”, this lake effect snow can prove to be dangerous overnight. With temperatures dropping and roads being wet, ice will be a concern for travels starting at 9PM tonight. Below is a map of current notifications. Pink indicates a Winter Storm Warning is active and purple indicates a Winter Weather Advisory is still in effect. We are expecting areas caught in snow squalls can receive upto another inch of snow possibly. Those in the
