A slow moving cold front to cross Pittsburgh today. Coler temps in store! We will see what next week, Thanksgiving week brings in terms of any wintry precip!
The Clipper is moving through the southern Ohio Valley this Saturday afternoon with anywhere from 1-5 inches of snow.In the wake of the clipper, colder air will blow over the Lakes and Winter Storm Watches, Lake Efffect Snow watches and advisories have been issued. Even where areas where Lake effect snow is not usually intense, areas such as Pittsburgh may see 2-4 inches by Tuesday.Click on the link below to view advisories:http://www.erh.noaa.gov/er/pit/
I'm also merging the Discussion Forums posts here and turning off the forums for these groups since the wall seems to get more action:
Winter Storm Watch for Pittsburgh
Storm is forecast to form on Atlantic Coast and move northward. Many other areas such as the upper midwest are under advisories as well.
I'm renaming this group Pennsylvania Weather to keep with the new naming convention of our state groups. I'll also add a couple PA Weather maps shortly! Also, if you know of any Backyard Stations in PA you want me to feature, let me know and I will! Also, feel free to get with Zach Stanford (one of my Facebook friends) on Facebook and see if he can get the new Pennsylvania Weather Facebook page up. We're teaming up with him to get Facebook Weather pages for all the US states and drive traffic to us.
Tornado conditions are to be repeated in the Upper midwest and Ohio Valley this spring as la Nina stays in control!
I have just finished reading the book "Tornado Watch 211" and I found it to be a very great book! This book is about the devastating tornado Outbreak that happened on Friday May 31, 1985 in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, and Canade that left 88 people dead. One horrible day!
Tornado conditions on March 23rd in the Ohi Valley region included:
1 A cold front advancing eastward....2.A warm front advancing northeast.
3 A jet stream moving from the southwest to northeast ans wind shear which means winds at different directions with height and thus the creation of spin in the atmosphere!
Quick hitting storm for Ohio Valley! Cold for both playoff games! Then another potential storm early next week but models as usual are all over the place showing 2 low pressure systems.
One diving south east out of the mid Mississippi Valley and another forming along the Carolina coast.
Some models have this storm far east, some have strong warm advection while others have another ice storm in the mid Atlantic so in other words too early too cal!
Alberta Clipper to move southeastward and will bring a broad 1-3 inches and in some areas 4 inches of snow with upslope flow into the Ohio Valley!
Next week may be very interesting as strong storm forms along the Gulf and begins moving northeast along the eastern seaboard. Models are in varying agreement with this one so stay informed!
