Estimated reading time:0 minutes, 57 seconds

Severe thunderstorms will pop-up Wednesday Afternoon ahead of an organized line anticipated to move through by the late afternoon and evening depending on location. The NWS Storm Prediction Center has now expanded the Slight Risk to cover the entire state. There is the possibility of an Enhanced Risk being warranted across Southern PA.

We expect storms to fire Wednesday Afternoon, some of which will likely turn severe. There is the possibility of a couple cells turning tornadic mainly in Southern and Central PA.

By late Wednesday Afternoon we expect an organized line of strong to severe thunderstorms to develop just ahead of the cold front and move east Wednesday Evening. The main risk with this line will be damaging winds.

Due to this line, the risk of damaging winds is highest, followed by hail in the most intense storms.

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!
