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.

    BLUSTERY SUNDAY: Get ready for the coldest air of the season to arrive. We’ve had it pretty good so far this winter with temperatures for most of the last month being above average. Now, some serious cold will be unleashed in the wake of the wintry mess we are dealing with today. Winds will be howling tomorrow out of the northwesterly direction. Typically when we see a set-up like this, it is conducive for some snow squall activity. The winds […]

  • Strong cold front crossing through tonight, gusty winds plus much colder air arrives tomorrow!

    GUSTY THURSDAY: A strong piece of energy swings through tonight dragging through a cold front that will bring back winter’s wrath! Temperatures tomorrow will likely be the warmest in the mid to late morning hours and dropping through the afternoon. Highs are still likely to be in the mid 40s, but by the afternoon they’ll fall to about the 40 degree mark. It’ll feel significantly colder though, once you factor in the gusty winds.

  • Temperatures bump up for Wednesday, then much colder for the end of the week with winter weather possible Saturday!

    BRIGHT AND SUNNY WEDNESDAY: After two days of dreary conditions, sunshine will be returning as we push into the middle of the week. Westerly winds will usher in drier and nicer weather for at least one day. Temperatures tomorrow will likely get a nice bump back up into the mid 50s before a big cool-down arrives by the end of the week. The flow aloft in the mid and upper levels is zonal which means we have calm conditions upstairs, […]

  • Slightly cooler through Tuesday, then brief warm up mid-week before the real cold arrives this weekend!

    COOL AND DREARY TUESDAY: Temperatures on Tuesday are likely going to be just as chilly as today, if not a few degrees cooler. High pressure parked to our north will continue to usher in easterly winds, pulling off moisture and cooler air off of the Atlantic. Then, we also have a coastal low to our south streaming moisture and that will only continue to develop cloud cover that will limit daytime heating. It is important to keep in mind, temperatures […]

  • Nice and mild to start the new week, big cool-down by the end of the week!

    STAYING MILD: Don’t expect it to be quite as mild as what we had this weekend, but temperatures still stay warm to kick off the new work week. Plenty of cloud cover is expected Monday as a coastal system will be developing to our south and east. Temperatures still manage to get into the low to mid 50s for highs on Monday afternoon. Tuesday is a bit trickier, with easterly winds likely setting up late Monday night and lasting through […]

  • Heavy rain and gusty winds expected tonight, but temperatures remain mild heading into next week!

    SHOWERS, GUSTY WINDS: A potent storm system that has been wreaking havoc across the south will slide into our neck of the woods tonight. We don’t have any risk of severe weather, but some heavy rain and gusty winds plus a couple rumbles of thunder are very possible. The first of the shower activity will likely move in after 11 PM in our western counties producing a line of very heavy rain and strong, gusty winds. That line will race […]

  • Find the umbrella, showers on the way for this weekend plus mild temperatures!

    WARMING UP: The eastern third of the country continues to bake under a strong ridge building in the mid levels of the atmosphere. Typically with a ridge pattern, we see warmer than usual temperatures with fairly calm weather. As a storm system comes through, that ridge will often times flatten and a trough (cooler than normal temperatures) will filter in behind. This weekend, temperatures continue to skyrocket as we are under the influence of a strong ridge. Impressive southerly-southwesterly flow […]

  • Few flurries possible tonight, then breezy winds pick up again on Monday!

    FLURRIES TONIGHT: A clipper system could bring some flurries our way tonight, but any and all winter weather will likely happen while you are sleeping! Most of the precipitation will stay to our north and west, but it is possible we see some flurries to light snow across the lower Susquehanna as well. No accumulating snow is expected tonight, but the gusty winds will continue. Clipper systems are known for their quick nature and the system will exit by the […]

  • Gusty winds picking up tonight making for a chilly end to the weekend!

    GUSTY WINDS SUNDAY: A cold front has crossed through and the wet weather is slow to exit. Drier air will work its way into the area tonight in the form of gusty winds that will overspread the state tomorrow. Strong northwesterly flow will pull in both cooler temperatures and drier air. Highs tomorrow will be knocked back into the low 40s, but it will feel significantly colder once you factor in the power of those winds. Winds chills on Sunday […]
