Severe Thunderstorms Possible Late This Afternoon / Evening
NUMEROUS SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING…
Thunderstorms are expected to develop to our west this afternoon. A favorable setup for severe storms will evolve late this afternoon and evening in southeastern Pennsylvania, eastern Maryland, southern New Jersey, and Delaware as these storms move eastward across the area during the 5 PM to 10 PM time frame.
These storms will have the potential to produce damaging winds, large hail, and heavy rainfall which could lead to isolated flash flooding and more widespread urban and poor drainage flooding. An isolated tornado is also possible, especially for locations near the Mason-Dixon Line that lie on the southern edge of the clearing skies this afternoon. Overall, the greatest risk with these storms will be damaging winds.
