SEVERE WEATHER THREAT THURSDAY: We need to be on alert Thursday for another day with potentially severe storms. The Storm Prediction Center has already highlighted all of the Susquehanna Valley under a Slight Risk for severe weather Thursday. This is only a level 2 out of 5 on the severe weather scale, but it is also the same level we had for storms on Sunday. The track of the low pressure system that will be responsible for sparking up severe weather will be positioned a little further south than the previous storm which could mean a more favorable environment for tornado activity. It is also worth mentioning that if there is already good agreement on the possibility of severe storms 2 days out, there may be a higher risk category issued closer to the event. Storms will likely be later in the afternoon and evening hours, the prime time for strong storms to develop. All activity will come to an end late Thursday night as a cold front crosses through.
Stay “Weather Smart” with the Fox 43 Weather Team all week long!
Have a wonderful day!
