AccuWeather Global Weather Center – November 18, 2022 –A round of heavy snow showers and squalls marching east across portions of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast on Friday will lead to dangerous travel conditions on the highways during one of the busiest travel days of the year, according to AccuWeather meteorologists. A fresh blast of cold air and atmospheric energy arriving in the region will be responsible for the snow threat. The same blast of cold air will lead to a December-like chill in the region this weekend while reinforcing the ongoing, major lake-effect snow event downwind of the Great Lakes.... Read more →

AccuWeather: Reality Check Coming to Eastern US in the Wake of Nicole

An unseasonably warm start to the month made it feel like spring at times in the East, but the looming pattern change will erase that warmth, and Old Man Winter will have some tricks up his sleeve as well.

"The interaction of a tropical system, such as Nicole, with a non-tropical system, such as the northern Plains blizzard, often ushers in a major weather pattern change to much of the Eastern states," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys.

Late October through November is the peak period for deer-related crashes, as that’s when white-tailed deer males (bucks) are in their annual pursuit of females (does) in the First State.That pursuit leads to more deer crossing roadways in the shorter days ahead – especially after the Nov. 6 change from daylight saving time back to Eastern Standard Time.

PATCO LEAF SEASON BEGINS; NEW SCHEDULE

PATCO will shift to its annual "leaf season" schedule beginning on Monday, October 31, 2022. "Train operators, much like when we drive in snow on the roads, drive slower and need more time to start and stop," said John D. Rink, General Manager, PATCO. "To account for longer run times, we have a special leaf season schedule every fall." The falling foliage leaves behind an oily residue when crushed by train wheels. This slick residue creates slippery rail conditions, which require trains to operate at reduced speeds with longer trip times. The loss of traction has the potential to flatten out areas of the train’s wheel surfaces resulting in the wheel rolling unevenly and emitting a thumping sound. When this occurs, the train is taken out of service to repair or replace the misshapen wheel. This could lead to train delays or cancellations. During ideal weather conditions, PATCO trains will...
