After this evening’s and tomorrow’s on and off rainfall, our attention turns to Wednesday for severe weather. A warm front will lift northward overnight Tuesday into early Wednesday morning, allowing for a cold front to pass through the state from west to east Wednesday afternoon. This cold front has the potential of producing scattered severe thunderstorms capable of producing winds in excess of 60 MPH.

Below is a look at the future radar for 3:00 PM Wednesday afternoon showing the cold front entering Western Pennsylvania with plenty of severe thunderstorms along the front: 

There is still a question as to how well the line of severe weather will maintain its strength as it continues to head eastward Wednesday afternoon. However, the conditions are favorable enough to put most of the area under a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather.
