Special Weather Statement--Snow Possible

Statement as of 9:55 PM EDT on October 13, 2009

... Unusual early season damaging heavy wet snow possible...

The combination of a developing storm off to the south of the
region... and abnormally chilly air in place over the northeastern
United States could create the potential for an early season
snowfall for parts of the region later in the week.

A storm system is expected to approach from the Tennessee River
valley Thursday... before redeveloping along the Carolina coast
later Thursday into Friday. With cold Canadian high pressure
perched up just top the north of the local area... and moisture
spreading in from the developing storm to our south... the
potential will be for a heavy... wet... damaging snow to develop
over parts of central Pennsylvania. At this time... the area that
looks to be most vulnerable to the early season snow will be from
about Interstate 80 south to the Pennsylvania Turnpike... especially
over the higher elevations.

With most trees still having all their leaves... even a few inches
of heavy wet snow will have the potential to cause serious tree
damage... along with power outages from limbs falling on power

Early season accumulating snows are very unusual but not unheard
of in Pennsylvania. Some earliest first dates of measurable snow
are provided below.

Williamsport Oct 16 1977 1.0"
Harrisburg Oct 19 1972 1.2"
State College Oct 18 1901 0.1"
Wellsboro Oct 17 1977 7.5"
Altoona Oct 27 1957 0.3"
Johnstown Oct 10 1925 0.2"
York Oct 19 1972 1.5"

Stay tuned to later forecast and statements on this potential early
winter weather event. With temperatures expected to be very
marginal... it would only take a small increase in expected
temperatures to turn the forecast for snow to predictions of just
a chilly rain.
