Band of Snow Spreading Across the Northeast Today...


Snow is falling moderately to heavily at times across central Pennsylvania this morning.  As you can see on the composite radar image above, the rain/snow line is currently just to the Northwest of both Philly and NYC.  Rain will likely mix with snow at times in those areas both this morning and then again late this afternoon or this evening, however significant accumulations are not expected in these areas.

At this time, it appears that the most significant accumulations will take place where we are currently seeing the band of moderate to locally heavy snow, from southcentral into northeast Pennsylvania:


All of the widespread rain and snow is causing quite a few travel delays across the region, so be sure to check ahead and allow extra time if you have plans to move across this area today by ground or air.

So what does your gut tell you about winter in the south central US? We had such a dry winter last year after blizzards two years in a row. I'm hoping for something in the middle. :)

Planet Pink,

Good to hear from you! Well, that's certainly the $64,000 question of the month, I think.

These "in between" years (going from La Nina to a weak and now non-existent El Nino) are tough to call. I am not persuaded to believe that conditions will be "better" or "worse" than normal, so that leads me to lean toward the "near normal" evaluation at this point.

With January and February the primary months where you have a shot at snow, we still have plenty of winter yet to come, and I do believe you'll see more than you did last year, but not nearly as much as you did the year before...

Mid December is usually the "tipping" point, and we should have a much better idea as to the late winter pattern here in a few weeks...
