Severe Thunderstorm Update, Slight Risk Expanded

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 6 seconds

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.

These storms will still be isolated, with many locations not seeing a drop of rain. However, areas that do receive these storms, will be in for some intense storms capable of producing damaging winds in excess of 60mph and even a tornado.

Timing: The threat exists all day for Storms, but the most vulnerable time looks to be in the late Afternoon and Evening hours.

Below is the updated Storm Prediction Center Map.

Area A – Area under greatest risk for Severe Weather Today. The Storm Prediction Center has expanded their SLIGHT RISK area to cover just about the entire state of PA.

Area B – This includes Erie and far Northwest PA. This area is under a MARGINAL RISK for Severe Weather. The potential still remains for damaging winds and a possible tornado, but the chances are a little lower than those under a SLIGHT RISK.

We will have updates throughout the day once these storms get firing, so be sure to have our Facebook page like to stay updated>>>>PA Weather Action on Facebook!
