Estimated reading time:1 minute, 20 seconds

Strong to Severe Thunderstorms have the potential of disrupting your plans for your Saturday. A line of storms will pushing from Northwest to Southeast throughout the first half of your day Saturday, possibly producing bowing segments that have the capabilities of producing damaging winds.

These storms will be hit or miss meaning NOT EVERY TOWN will see a storm.

The earlier this system arrives Tomorrow, the less chance of this line producing Severe Weather. However, if it comes in a little slower, areas that receive this line in the afternoon/early evening hours have the better chance of experiencing Severe Weather and is why the Storm Prediction Center has placed these areas under a MARGINAL RISK.

Below is the latest Storm Prediction Center forecast for Saturday.

Area A – This area is placed under a MARGINAL RISK for Severe Weather. Timing: 11 AM – 2 PM for Wesern areas in this Zone (closer to Harrisburg) and 2 PM – 5 PM for Central and Eastern areas of this zone (Reading, Allentown, Philadelphia, etc.)

Area B – Thunderstorms are possible Saturday Mid-Morning. Most activity will remain below Severe Criteria. Timing: 7 AM – 11 AM, West to East.

Area C – Showers are still possible early Saturday Morning, but due to the fact these showers will happen before Sunrise, little to no instability will be available in these locations to produce Severe Storms. Timing: 12 AM (Saturday) – 7 AM West to East.
