Much like yesterday, scattered thunderstorms will be in the forecast state-wide, however this time around, there is more of an upside potential in terms of meeting Severe criteria.
Timing: Storms will fire up in the mid-morning hours across Western PA and continue to develop and push Eastward throughout the Afternoon hours.
The Storm Prediction Center has stated that the main impact with Today’s storms will be damaging winds in excess of 60mph.
Area A – The Storm Prediction Center has placed this area under a SLIGHT RISK for Severe Weather. Based on Today’s setup and the ingredients that will be coming together, this area stands the best chance for storms capable of producing Severe Weather.
Area B – This area has been placed under a MARGINAL RISK for Severe Weather. Although a lower threat than Area A, this area still stands the chance of damaging winds.
Area C – All storms will remain under Severe Criteria.
**Please note, although the Storm Prediction Center did not mention this in their discussion, yesterday’s storms “trained” over the same areas for an extended period of time causing flash flooding, Today’s setup is pretty similar, so included with Damaging Winds, Flash Flooding in our opinion is also another big threat.**
