Thunderstorms Possible in Parts of PA Wednesday, Some Strong

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 18 seconds

        With steady rain Wednesday across the state, there will be some clearing in the evening. Yes, we are in February but conditions Wednesday will be very spring-like. Some thunderstorms are likely to develop late afternoon across Southcentral PA and move east into Southeast PA.

        With the primary risk of tornadoes down in Southern Virginia and Eastern NC, even our area could see strong to severe storms producing scattered damaging winds and locally heavy rainfall that could lead to flooding. The thunderstorms will move west-to-east and the highest convective available potential energy levels look to be from Lancaster County to Franklin County.

        We have placed a sizable area of the state in a marginal risk of strong to severe storms along with a sliver of Southcentral PA in a slight risk. For those in or on the edge of the slight risk region, you have a 20% chance of being impacted by a severe thunderstorm and a 40% chance of being impacted by a strong storm under severe limits.


        Here is our exclusive FutureCast Radar illustrating what areas could be hit by these thunderstorms and around what time they will be affected. Every radar frame is one hour.


        We will post any watches and warnings issued by the SPC/NWS on our facebook page. Also, if you own or know somebody who owns a small business in Pennsylvania, be sure to check out the Sponsor Us Page! Don’t forget to like us on facebook! >>>Pennsylvania Weather Action Facebook Page!

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!
