Strong to Severe Storms Possible Across Much of PA Sunday

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 0 seconds

The NWS Storm Prediction Center has labeled much of Western and Central PA in a Slight Risk Sunday. With the ground already saturated throughout much of the western part of the state, the flash flooding risk will be particularly high. Even pop-up, non-severe storms may cause flooding in flood-prone regions.


Area A – Locations included in this region are under a Slight Risk. This means scattered severe thunderstorms are expected.

Area B – Locations included in this region are under a Marginal Risk. This means isolated severe thunderstorms are expected, and mainly short-lived.

The greatest risk Sunday will be flash flooding, followed by damaging winds. There is a low-moderate hail risk, and a low tornado risk.

Strong storms will form in Western and Central PA Sunday Afternoon. A line of strong to severe storms will be possible in Western PA in the late evening.

If you approach a flooded roadway, turn around. It only takes 6″ to disable most passenger cars. We will be posting all alerts on our facebook page  >> Click Here to Like PA Weather Action on facebook! Warn your friends and family by sharing this article using the icons below, stay safe!

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!
