Forecasting the weather; what’s in store this winter

Also, the REAL ID is here, but who needs one?

The first real blast of cold air this season might come as a shock when you walk out the door today. Temperatures in central Pennsylvania took a tumble over the past 24 hours as a cold front brought rain, wind and colder temps to the Midstate area.  

Is this a taste of what we can expect for the remainder of fall? And what about snow predictions, will the weather prognosticators prove correct with their predictions for high snow totals this winter?  

Meteorologist Eric Horst, Director of the Weather Information Center at Millersville University joins Smart Talk on Friday to talk about the weather trends we might expect this winter.

Also, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is now issuing the REAL-ID’s, but there is still some confusion about who, or even if you need one.  

According to PennDOT, beginning October 1, 2020, Pennsylvanians will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, photo ID card, or another form of federally-acceptable identification (such as a valid passport or military ID) to board a domestic commercial flight or enter a federal building or military installation that requires ID.   

Appearing on Friday’s Smart Talk  to discuss Pennsylvania’s implementation of the REAL ID are Alexis Campbell, Press Secretary at PennDOT and Kurt Myers, Deputy Secretary for Driver and Vehicle Services at PennDOT.
