We are releasing our very first 2017 Trick or Treat temperature map! This map is included to provide everyone a way to estimate how cold it will be while “trick or treating” this year in Pennsylvania! Feel free to share this with your friends and family. Please be aware, maps may change due to unexpected storms but currently, this is how cold it will be! Blue: The blue-shaded areas mean that temperatures will be 43° F or below. There is a chance for this changing due to warm-ups and unexpected storms. Yellow: The yellow-shaded areas mean the temperatures will be between 43° F and 50° F. Red: This is the warmest

Jose will track close enough to the northeastern United States to raise seas and winds as well as to deliver rain to coastal areas next week. At this time, there is no current threat to land. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said in an advisory Friday afternoon that Jose had sustained winds of 75 mph. It was located about 640 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and about 485 miles southwest of Bermuda. The hurricane was moving northwest at about 10 mph, was expected to turn to the north-northwest by late Saturday and toward the north on Sunday. Some strengthening was forecast through Saturday, with weakening possibly beginning on late Sunday.

La Nina (cooling) is the flip side of El Nino (heating), which is the cooling of the central Pacific Ocean that affects weather patterns worldwide. In the United States, La Nina conditions usually mean wetter winters in the northern Rockies, Pacific Northwest, and Ohio Valley, warmer, drier conditions in the southern portions of the United States. La Nina and El Nino years vary in terms of impact for the Brazos Valley. Typically Texas sees drier and warmer winters during La Nina. During a weak La Nina, that impact may not be as large or may have little effect at all on Texas weather. A 55-60% chance of La Nina equates to

Pennsylvania is home to many cities, wildlife, and blizzards… but hold onto your top-hat there Mr. Frosty – we’re not saying a blizzard is coming anytime soon! But unfortunately, many services are tracking what is expected to be a very bone-chilling winter with lots of snow, and yes, more ice. Temperatures Now let’s break this down from the beginning. There is no such thing as a polar vortex within the mainstream media… it is just a click-bait message to get users to click on links. Cold temperatures exist everywhere, just look at the several ice-ages the earth has had. But we can expect cold temperatures to be sweeping into the region

The warmth from the Upper Midwest to the central and southern Plains will spread into the Northeast in the coming days. The pattern will bring August-like conditions in many locations. Temperatures will average 10 to 15 degrees Fahrenheit above normal in the swath from Amarillo, Texas, to Kansas City, Missouri, and Minneapolis into this weekend. Highs will range from the upper 80s to the lower 90s in much of this swath. Farther east, temperatures will be less extreme but will still be well above average this weekend and into next week. Temperatures from Washington, D.C., to Albany, New York, and Caribou, Maine, will average 5 to 10 degrees above average. Highs will

Information was taken from WeatherUnderground: Even as Tropical Storm Irma continues to wallop parts of the Southeast U.S, the region will also need to keep an eye on Hurricane Jose over the next few days. Hurricane Jose is now wandering several hundred miles to the north of the Leeward Islands, after brushing them on Saturday as a high-end Category 4 storm with 155 mph winds. Jose will spend the next four days performing a slow clockwise loop without affecting any land areas. The rather odd forecast track is the result of a mid-level high to the east of Jose which will build south of Jose in 24 hours, then west of Jose in

Hurricane Jose pulled farther away from the Caribbean Sunday morning and is expected to weaken over the next few days, the National Hurricane Center said. In its 5 p.m. advisory, the NHC said the center of the storm was located about 400 miles northwest of the northern Leeward Islands — the easternmost in the chain of Caribbean Sea islands — and 285 miles east of Grand Turk Island. Jose has not had much movement through the early part of Sunday. “This motion is expected to continue tonight with a slowing of forwarding speed on Monday,” the NHC said. “Jose will begin turning toward the northeast Monday night, followed by a more eastward

Irma’s track up the Florida Peninsula will push a large amount of water toward the Georgia, South Carolina, and southeastern North Carolina coasts, threatening to cause coastal flooding in places such as Savannah, Charleston, and Myrtle Beach. These locations will also be on the northeastern side of the storm, heightening the risk of waterspouts and tornadoes. Heavy rain is forecast to spread inland toward the southern Appalachians from Monday to Tuesday, potentially leading to extensive flooding due to the mountainous and hilly terrain of northeastern Georgia, western South Carolina, eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina. The amount of rain that falls will lessen significantly beyond the Southeast as Irma runs into a

Information has been taken directly from NASA: The large-scale structure of clouds in and around Hurricane Irma is seen in this animation and still image created with data from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA’s Aqua satellite. The clouds are typical of tropical areas both nearby and away from tropical cyclones. Observations were taken at 1 p.m. EDT (5 p.m. UTC) on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017, as Irma approached the Caribbean islands and was just becoming a powerful Category 5 storm. Each cylinder represents a volume of cloud detected by AIRS. The oval cylinder ends represent a region viewed by AIRS, with the oval sizes adjusted to reflect the proportion
