Let’s see about the weather in northeastern Pennsylvania tonight. It’s been warm and wet for the last several weeks. Will it continue?
At 1254AM, ET, Scranton was reporting a temperature of 29 degrees with overcast skies. Flurries were falling as nearby as Allentown, but the swath of heavy snow is pressing to the east and out of eastern Pennsylvania. A vast area of low pressure lies over the southern part of Hudson Bay, and the heavy snow represents the leading edge of the disturbance.
The upper level trough parenting this low will generate an undercutting surface low over the Great Lakes throughout the day Tuesday. This refocused feature will accelerate and swing through New England on Wednesday, but Tuesday does appear as though it will be filled with light snow and blustery winds.

I’m not sure we’re going to see temperatures spike quite as warm as many outlets seem to think on Tuesday. Too many clouds, too much terrain. I’m always wrong in the mountains. Here is a look at the radar, with a whole lot of rain headed for the coast.
