It has been several months since we have had an ideal setup for widespread severe thunderstorms. You have to look all the way back to Late February or even last year. Sunday will bring the potential for widespread severe storms carrying the threat of damaging winds, large hail, and even a few tornadoes. What is this caused by?
On Sunday, a low pressure system will move over the Eastern Great Lakes. This partnered with impressive wind shear and CAPE levels exceeding 2,000 J/kg, along with strong lift will create an ideal severe storm setup for Pennsylvania. We are especially focusing on Central and Eastern PA, as these areas are at the highest risk.
Here is our Severe Thunderstorm Threat Map as well as a Main Risks Graphic, take a look.
Hello, my name is Josh Adams. This year I am a junior in high school in South Central PA. I have had a passion for weather since I was five or six years old, watching the Weather Channel when the average kid my age was watching cartoons. At age 11, I discovered that there is a significant amount of weather info online from knowledgeable meteorologists to weather models and everything in between. I had the privilege to take part in a group that held informational weather discussions nearly everyday.
I gained a significant amount of knowledge in several months back in 2012, constantly studying meteorology for hours each and just about every day. I created Northeast Weather Action in early 2013, just after the previous winter had ended. Things were pretty slow to start, however the winter of 2013-2014 greatly helped grow the page. Several of my forecasts verified nicely across the area. I met Chris during that winter in a facebook group, and we talked often about anticipated weather events. Just before the start of the 2014-2015 Winter, I added Chris to Northeast Weather Action (now Pennsylvania Weather Action), and once again we hit several key forecasts.
Chris and I are looking forward to giving you the most up to date and reliable forecasts!
