First Defense: Severe Storm Threat Continues South And East Through The Afternoon

JAMESTOWN – A line of severe thunderstorms moved though the Southern Tier between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. this afternoon. However, the threat for additional severe storms continues for areas south and east of the Southern Tier.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is currently in effect for Warren County, PA until 8 p.m. this evening. The potential exists for a few thunderstorms that could produce damaging winds, large hail and heavy rain.

NOAA Storm Prediction Center also maintains the standard Slight Risk (level 2/5) across all of Western New York and much of Northwest Pennsylvania.

Storms will come to an end by the evening hours tonight, just time time for the Bills/Colts preseason game at New Era Field. Temps will go from 70 around kickoff to 67 by the time 4th Quarter starts.

There still could be a few showers overnight across the Southern Tier. Lows will range 55 on the hills to 63 across the Lake Erie Shoreline.

Tomorrow will be mainly dry but there is a small chance for a sprinkle or isolated rain shower in the afternoon. Highs will be nice and comfortable in the lower to mid 70’s.

The weekend will be nice and dry with lots of sunshine and below-average temperatures. The next chance for rain holds off until early next week.
