PM Update: Warm & Muggy; Isolated Shower?
Unsettled on Friday with a chance of severe weather
Since we can't seem to fully rid ourselves from the afternoon/evening shower and storm threat, at least we are back down to a slight risk today. Outside isolated activity, most places should stay dry, making way for quiet weather for any outdoor activities this evening. A bit more cloudiness -- and less of a west wind -- than anticipated has held high temperatures back mainly in the upper 80s to near 90, rather than 90 and above.
Through Tonight: After a slight risk of an afternoon/evening shower or storm, we will see another night of warm and muggy conditions. Look for lows ranging from 70-75 most spots along with mostly cloudy skies.
Tomorrow (Friday): Friday should be similar to what we saw Wednesday with unsettled conditions likely. Numerous afternoon and evening showers or storms are possible, but clouds throughout the day may stifle development. Depending on the exact track and timing of a system moving by, we could once again be looking at a severe threat (including a risk of isolated tornadoes) across the area. Highs should rise into the mid-80s.
Northeast Tornadoes: There were a few storms around here yesterday exhibiting rotation along with isolated tornado warnings. Places further northeast saw some confirmed touchdowns. Portions of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York got rocked pretty hard. In the Poconos (near Stroudsburg, Pa.), an EF-2 was captured on amateur video and the aftermath can be seen in a news report.
