You don't need studs when it starts falling, and check the forecast for later in the day.
Are you guessing, or do you know what happens there? I don't know, either, but it wouldn't surprise me to hear PA has the bad kind of freezing rain. I know OH gets it a lot, and PA is just east of OH, at the same latitude.
