Pennsylvania Climate & Geography

Located in the Northeastern area of the United States, Pennsylvania is bordered by Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Lake Erie. The state has 51 miles of shoreline along Lake Erie and 57 miles of shoreline along the Delaware Estuary. Also, the Appalachian Mountains run throughout the middle of the state. Its five main regions are identified as the Allegheny Plateau, Ridge and Valley, Atlantic Coastal Plain, Piedmont, and the Erie Plain.

Generally, the entire state has cold winters and humid summers but the varied landscape produces a variety of climates throughout the state. The majority of Pennsylvania has a humid continental climate while the greater Philadelphia area has a humid subtropical climate. Inland, closer to the mountains, the winter is noticeably colder with cloudier days and more snowfall. Farther west, near Lake Erie, sees about 100 inches of snowfall yearly.
