While many of us are enjoying the abnormally warm weather for this time of year, we are tracking a potent cold front that will be pushing across the state during the day Tomorrow. It currently stands that Central and Eastern PA will have a more likely chance of experiencing these strong to severe storms Tomorrow due to it occurring later in the day. Western PA will be first to be hit by the cold front, anywhere between 5 AM and 8 AM, this will lead to downpours and possibly a rumble of thunder. Because it is occurring early in the morning…MORE...

A low pressure system moving through the Central Plains and Upper Midwest will cut to our west Thursday and Friday, pushing temperatures in Central and Southern PA over the 70 degree mark both days.

Bowing-Line Segments Capable of Producing Damaging Winds Possible Sunday A system pushing through Ohio right now, will be crossing Pennsylvania during the overnight hours and into the day on Sunday. Due to cloud coverage, Western PA will be in for a chance of showers and downpours, but nothing severe. However, skies will be more clear to the East, which will lead to increased instability and the potential for Severe Weather. The Storm Prediction Center states the potential exists for isolated bowing-line segments capable of producing damaging winds. Tornado risk seems to be rather limited this time around, but the threat for straight-line wind damage is a concern. Timing: Showers/downpours will arrive…MORE...
Severe Thunderstorm Update, Slight Risk Expanded Since last night’s update, the Storm Prediction Center has now expanded their SLIGHT RISK for Severe Weather to cover just about the entire state with the exception for far Northwest PA.
