First Defense: Severe Storms Possible Thursday

JAMESTOWN – An active weather pattern is ahead with strong to severe thunderstorms likely tonight through Thursday.

With a frontal boundary riding close to the region, showers and thunderstorms will be commonplace tonight through Friday with the chance some fo them could be strong to severe. We’ll start to back down the temperatures into next week with some sunshine retuning once again.

The NOAA Storm Prediction Center has outlined all of the Southern Tier and Northwestern Pennsylvania under a standard Slight Risk, a level 2 out of 5, for severe thunderstorms later this afternoon and evening.

The main threats will be from damaging winds, large hail, and heavy rain.

The SPC has the entire region under a Slight Risk again for Thursday with the main threats once again from damaging winds, large hail, and heavy rain. An isolated spin-up tornado cannot be ruled out but the threat is rather low…but not zero.

Showers and storms will develop this evening and continue throughout the overnight in spots. A few storms could be strong to severe. Mild and muggy. Lows 62 in the valleys, 69 at the Lake Erie shoreline.

Tomorrow will start dry with developing showers and storms in the afternoon. A few could be severe. Mild and muggy and breezy. Highs 79 to 86. Winds SW 15-25 MPH.

Widespread showers will be likely on Friday with maybe a rumble of thunder or two. Muggy. Highs 75 to 83.

As the remnants of what is now major Hurricane Laura work up through the northeast over the weekend, depending on the exact track we may see in influx in tropical showers Friday night through Saturday. Highs in the mid 70’s.

We’ll start to dry out on Sunday as the remnant low of Laura moves out into the Atlantic waters. We may still have a chance for a shower or storm but the majority of the day will be dry with a good supply of sunshine. Cooler. Highs in the lower 70’s.

We should remain mainly dry both Monday and Tuesday with a much more refreshing airmass moving in. Highs in the mid 70’s.
