Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Likely Saturday, Some Bringing Wind Gusts Over 60mph & Cloud-to-Ground Lightning

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 6 seconds

        The Storm Prediction Center has labeled much of PA under a slight risk. Damaging winds, quarter size hail, and an isolated tornado will be possible. Being that temperatures will be over 90 degrees tomorrow in many regions, storms will likely get started in the mid-morning. However we don’t expect them to gain strength until the afternoon.

        There is no specific timing because the storms will be pop-ups and scattered in nature throughout the day, so if you have any outdoor plans be sure to check the radar every so often and stay tuned for any weather alerts for your area. Below are the Main Thunderstorm Risks for Saturday.


        Storms will be moving from northwest to southeast. For example if a storm is over Harrisburg, then it will likely be heading into Western Lancaster County of Eastern York County. As mentioned, the greatest threat will be damaging winds especially if an organized line forms. Here is the Storm Prediction Center’s Risk Map.


        If you hear thunder, then you are close enough to be struck by lightning. Don’t forget to like us on facebook by clicking here.

Stay safe everyone, share this with your friends and family especially if you plan to be outdoors!

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!
