PA Blurb - December 2014

A remarkable switch from November as Pacific air dominated the region during December. While the month was bookended by chilly conditions, with the coldest weather coming just before New Years, it was also a dry month near the Great Lakes and rather moist in the southeast half of the state. The only severe weather occurred on Christmas Eve when 6 reports of wind damage associated with a strengthening cold front were noted in the western most counties. This month was quite mild with readings between 2.4 (Harrisburg) and 5.0 (Scranton) degrees above the long-term average, much like 2012. Precipitation was above average in two distinct corridors; one stretching along and south of the PA Turnpike and the other from eastern Centre county to the north side of the Poconos. Somerset and Susquehanna counties recorded the most (around 5 inches), while the least fell in Erie and Warren counties as less than 2 inches was tallied, about 1.3" below normal. Snowfall was below average everywhere in the state with virtually no snow along the Mason-Dixon line from Adams to Chester counties and only 10 inches falling the Crawford county.
