CWS Forecast: Northwest Pennsylvania

An active pattern is in store for Pennsylvania over the weekend and the beginning of next week we have multiple storms making their way towards our area. Starting off with Saturday, a strong, rapidly intensifying system will bring rain throughout the area throughout the day, with precipitation especially strong in the Western Portion of the state. This precipitation will eventually change over to snow by Saturday night for the western half of the state before shutting off completely overnight. Sunday morning looks to be clear and cold for most of the state with the exception for northwestern Pennsylvania which will see lake effect snow showers throughout the day. On Monday, yet another wintry storm will progress into the area, bringing a mixed bag of wintry precipitation in the afternoon hours before changing over to all rain by Monday night into Tuesday morning, so keep that in mind for any travel plans after finals! As the system moves out quickly on Tuesday night, skies will clear and temperatures will crash for Wednesday as more lake effect snow is possible by the end of the forecast period.
