Supercells to Bring Hail, Damaging Winds & Possibly Brief Tornado Friday

Estimated reading time:0 minutes, 58 seconds

Although we don’t expect this to be a significant event, the Storm Prediction Center has upgraded NE-PA to a slight risk. Their discussion mentions this, “SLIGHT RISK FOR HAIL…WIND…AND PERHAPS A BRIEF/WEAK TORNADO.” The slight risk covers much of Eastern Upstate New York as well, and if there were to be a brief tornado it would likely be in New York, however with that said the Northern Poconos can not be ruled out of this risk.

The rest of Eastern Pennsylvania is at a marginal risk for seeing these severe thunderstorms, including locations such as Philadelphia, Allentown, Reading, Lancaster, Harrisburg, Williamsport, York and surrounding areas. If supercell thunderstorms were to develop, they would likely be across far NE-PA. There is no specific timing besides just overall Friday Afternoon/Evening, as these will be pop-up storms rather than an organized line. Below is the Storm Prediction Center’s Risk Map.

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!
