Greetings and salutations! I happily joined the Fox 43 Weather Smart Team in November of 2018. I packed my bags and settled into South-Central PA after spending a year and a half forecasting the fickle and tricky weather patterns of West Virginia. While in Clarksburg, I worked for WDTV as the weekday morning and noon meteorologist. Prior to living in the wild and wonderful state, I spent some time in radio broadcasting as well, delivering forecasts to multiple stations in the Southeast.

Now, let’s rewind. I was born and raised in the city that never sleeps. From snowy winters to hot and humid summers, weather in New York City is rarely regular or boring. The desire to learn and master one of the most unpredictable phenomena in the world is what has driven me to become a meteorologist. I took my passion for weather to Rutgers University and graduated in 2017 with a major in Meteorology and minor in Business Administration. Throughout my 4 years in college, I created and delivered forecasts in our very own studio. I spent many long days interning in the newsrooms of News 12 New Jersey, ABC’s Good Morning America and World News Tonight. I have always been fascinated with all things weather but snow in particular is my favorite, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to forecast South Central PA’s winter weather! Keeping you safe when dangerous weather is imminent is my main priority.

On rare occasion when I’m not weather crazy, I have other interests as well! I learned how to play the piano at a very young age and I love sitting down and mastering a new piece. Cuddling up on my couch with my kitten Timmy and watching HGTV is another one of my guilty pleasures. If you have any questions about weather, I have the answer! Reach out to me on social media through Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Or we can chat about weather the old fashioned way – send me an email at jpash@fox43.com.

  • Strong to severe storms possible again on Monday!

    STORM THREAT ENDING TONIGHT: Overall, our threat for severe weather is quickly coming to an end for Sunday, but there is a threat for more severe storms to start off the new work week. The main line of storms that continues to bring dangerous weather to western PA is advancing east-south-east, but as the sun sets the line will lose most of its energy. That being said, this line of storms is likely to fall apart before reaching south-central PA. […]

  • Another round of showers this afternoon, drying out and warming up towards the weekend

    ROUND TWO OF RAIN: After a rainy morning start, cloudy skies stay with us all day long. High temperatures fall just short of 70-degrees. Another round of showers and maybe a rumble of thunder or two move in during the late afternoon and early evening. The Storm Prediction Center has us in a very low threat for severe weather, but that likelihood is about as close to zero as you can get. When all is said and done, storm totals […]

  • Showers and cooler temperatures likely for Thursday!

    RAIN SHOWERS RETURN: After just two days of bright and sunny weather, our next rain-maker is on the move. Shower chances return as we push into Thursday with a coastal low that rides up the Carolina coast. This brings our first batch of rain showers overnight, with the steadiest rain likely through the early morning hours. That means your morning commute is going to be wet and slow! Be prepared to give yourself a bit of extra time Thursday morning. […]

  • Winds calm down tonight as high pressure noses in from the west!

    HIGH PRESSURE NOSING IN: After a dreary start to the work week we can welcome back sunshine and warmer temperatures! Despite the breezy winds today, it is a bright and beautiful day. High pressure off to our west will keep a cool breeze out of the northwesterly direction through this evening. Winds will slowly relax tonight as high pressure slides overhead by early Wednesday morning. Our skies remain mainly clear through the day Wednesday, but will begin to thicken back […]

  • Increase in thunderstorms this evening and overnight, drying mid-week

    SHOWERS CONTINUE: Spotty showers persist throughout a good portion of the day. Another more solid line of showers and storms will track through in the mid-evening into the early overnight, but most of the shower activity should stop before midnight. A spotty shower could linger into Tuesday morning. Highs today reach the mid-70s. Morning lows dip into the low-60s. DRYING, COOLER: We dry out heading into Tuesday and stay that way for Wednesday. Highs hit the mid-70s with clearing skies. […]

  • Dry stretch coming to an end with rain showers returning tonight!

    WET WEATHER RETURNS: A big thank you to Mother Nature for finally giving us a break from the rain showers, at least for a couple of days. Our dry stretch is quickly coming to an end as our next rain maker approaches. A few showers are possible late this evening, but most of the rain arrives overnight Sunday into Monday. Our start to the new work week will likely be a wet and dreary one, although it won’t be a […]

  • A dry start to the weekend, but rain chances return by the end of the weekend!

    COOL AND DRY NIGHT AHEAD: Despite cloud cover thickening back up tonight, temperatures should still have a good opportunity to fall into the upper 50s to about 60 degrees. You can leave the air conditioner off for tonight, but with muggier conditions making a return Sunday — you will likely need it again pretty soon. We remain dry for tonight, but a few showers are possible by late day on Sunday ahead of our next system that will likely bring […]

  • Mainly dry weekend ahead before shower chances return late Sunday!

    MAINLY DRY WEEKEND: Despite the cloud cover to end off the work week, we will remain dry. Some high clouds are overspreading the southern half of the state thanks to a system that is dumping rain over the south-eastern states. High pressure will nose in tomorrow and allow for a bit of sunshine through the morning hours. As that area of high pressure slides off into the Atlantic, our winds will shift direction to a primarily easterly wind for the […]

  • A nice stretch of dry weather lasts through most of the weekend!

    DRY AND MUGGY NIGHT AHEAD: A few sprinkles fell earlier this afternoon, but most of the area stayed dry today. Dew points remain high in the upper 60s which means you can really feel the humidity in the air. Temperatures are warm this afternoon as well sitting in the low to mid 80s! A cold front crosses through the area this afternoon, but it is not all that impressive. It knocks back our dew points into the 50s for a […]
