Mother Nature: Getting Colder But Very Little Snow Predicted

winter-1439672_1280JEFFERSON CO., Pa. (EYT) — Winter has come and gone in the region in 2017, and it’s not likely to get substantially worse.

There have been a few days where accumulating snow of an inch or more fell, but they were generally followed by temperatures warm enough to melt what had fallen.

While there is no actual snowfall tracking station in Jefferson County, according to the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh, days of accumulating snow have been few and far in between.

It’s not expected to change much in the next few weeks, although a cold front is going to blow through the region late Saturday night, dropping temperatures to around 30.

In Brookville, the National Weather Service forecast is similar with temperatures dropping into the upper 20s Saturday night, but no measurable snow is called for.

According to snowfall.weatherdb.com, Punxsutawney has had an average annual snowfall of 42.5 inches over the last 30 years, which is 20.1 inches more than the national average (22.4 inches). Seventy-eight percent of Punxsutawney’s snow fell during the winter months.

But for those wishing to see more snow, don’t give up hope.

The record snowfall was 25 inches on March 14, 1993.
