If you have never lived in Pennsylvania or in the surrounding states before, you are in for a treat—or not, depending on how much you enjoy very unpredictable weather. In the course of just one day in Pennsylvania, you can alternate between pouring rain, drizzle, sunshine, clouds, and even simultaneous rain and sun (with a rainbow!).
Pennsylvania also has very unpredictable winters. The winter of 2010 was very snowy, with a few major snowstorms that caused many canceled classes at Arcadia. However, some winters are very mild, with only a few flurries. There is really no way to describe Pennsylvania weather. It is best to say that those who have never experienced it will get a taste of almost every type of weather there is—except most extreme types of weather such as tornadoes or hurricanes (though we do get the aftermath of those storms in the form of pouring rain or high-wind gusts).
