Strong-to-severe storms likely Friday, warming up with the holiday

Gusty winds and heavy rain likely Friday before we dry out over the holiday.

PENNSYLVANIA, USA — SEVERE FRIDAY: Clouds stick around overnight tonight and through most of Friday. We start off in the 60s with highs in the mid-to-upper 70s. There is another risk of strong-to-severe weather into Friday. On a scale of 1-to-5, we're at a 2.

Thunderstorms start late morning and continue throughout the day.

However, timing once again will be key throughout the day to amplify our severe threat. If we get the starting period a little later in the early afternoon, then we could be facing a brief, isolated tornado threat. If we see showers around 11AM, which is looking more likely, then gusty winds and heavy rain will be the main concern. Showers linger as this storm system passes through even into the night. Stay tuned for updates.

Rain chances linger into the evening.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: Memorial Day Weekend doesn’t look too bad for any plans, but we might have to dodge a few showers or storms to start! Saturday brings seasonably warm conditions and partly sunny skies. There’s the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms, particularly earlier during the day. Highs are in the middle to upper 70s. This is going to be the best chance for showers and storms for the weekend, with improvement through the rest of it! Sunday brings a return to sunshine and dry conditions. Highs are in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Memorial Day looks dry and warmer, with temperatures reaching the middle to upper 80s, flirting too close to the 90-degree mark for a few. It’s mostly sunny.

Wednesday continues the heat and humidity, with highs near 90 degrees. Heat indices both days are in the lower to middle 90s.
