Enhanced risk for severe t-storms in Central PA later Monday

My Pocket Meteorologist text alerts will not only provide you with advanced notice of incoming storm threats, but will also provide real-time alerts for thunderstorms approaching the specific area that you live and/or work. Real-time alerts will take the guessing game of what to expect for what’s headed your way, sent by an ACTUAL METEOROLOGIST, not a computer or an app. This includes start/end times and duration of that specific storm, lightning threats, total rain, wind and gusts, hail (size) and tornadoes (if applicable). Things that neither an app nor a radar can tell you. We’re here to do the work, so that you don’t have to… and you can always stay ahead of the storms with safety and peace of mind.

Summary: 

A cold front will be pressing eastward Monday afternoon and evening, and thunderstorms, some locally strong/severe are possible ahead of the front. Where this front reaches the areas of best diurnal heating, especially across Central PA, the severe threat is at its highest, and a lessening threat farther eastward. Slight risk includes most of Eastern PA, and a marginal risk farther east into New Jersey.

Impacts and Timing:

Timing for enhanced risk areas are from late afternoon Monday into Monday evening, and mid to late evening farther east.

Thunderstorms have the ability to produce damaging straight-line wind gusts to 70mph, hail to 1″ in diameter, and an isolated tornado is possible. Local threat analysis will be further updated by EPAWA publicly on Monday morning, May 1st.
