May Weather

In the days leading up to the weekend of May 25 (Memorial Day weekend), we are predicting a chance of thunderstorms. However, we believe that the latter half of the weekend will be sunny and warm. 

Will it ever snow in NEPA

Is it ever going to snow in Northeastern Pa or are we just going to have a warm wet winter where everyone gets sick?

Snow tn the Northeast

I have said the same thing. We need cold and snow to kill off all these nasty germs. I want SNOW please.

Snow in PA

Unfortunately, we are predicting that most of the US will have above-normal temperatures and above-normal rainfall this winter. Sorry!

That being said, we are also predicting some snowfall for northeastern PA in late January and into February, so keep an eye out for that!

Rocky Mt VA Snow

What is the predictions for my area of Rocky Mount VA? Is there a lot of snow on the way?

Snowfall expected February and March?

Is Charlottesville going to get any substantial snowfall in February or March of 2019?

Feb, Mar snow?

We are predicting below-normal snowfall for this winter, so it is not expected. There will be snowfall events occasionally in each month, and the snow could be hazardous, but we are not forecasting snowstorms for this region.

Snow

Hello, Can you tell me when we can expect the most snow fall for Jan. and Feb. for this area?

when is the snow coming in Lynchburg, va in Jan, Feb and Mar

I need to know when to plan for snow.

the most snowfall...

Actually, “the most” is hard to gauge; we are predicting snow at the end of January and snow showers or flurries during February. We are not predicting any snowstorms this winter in this region…but it could happen!
