Strong to severe storms possible



BURNING OF THE BRIDGE. NOW, THE WGAL NEWS 8 STORM TEAM FORECAST WITH METEOROLOGIST MARYELLEN PANN. WELL, IF YOU’RE GOING TO SPEND SOME TIME OUTDOORS TODAY, JUST KEEP IN MIND THAT WE COULD STILL SEE A FEW SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LATER THIS AFTERNOON. THERE’S STILL ENOUGH INSTABILITY IN THE ATMOSPHERE TO TRIGGER SOME ACTIVITY, BUT JUST PLAN FOR THAT. CERTAINLY GET OUT AND ENJOY THE DAY TOMORROW. THERE IS A BETTER CHANCE FOR SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS, POSSIBLY STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS. SO WE’VE MADE IT AN IMPACT DAY AND WE’RE LOOKING TO STAY HUMID AND UNSETTLED FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK WITH MORE STORM CHANCES IN THE FORECAST RIGHT NOW. HERE’S A NICE SHOT OF OUR LEBANON SKYCAM. YOU SEE THE SUN IS UP FEATURING PLENTY OF SUNSHINE. THIS MORNING. JUST A FEW CLOUDS. BUT AS WE GO THROUGH THE DAY, WE’LL SEE A LITTLE BIT MORE CLOUD COVER ACROSS THE AREA. AT LEAST WE’RE NOT DEALING WITH THE THICK FOG WE HAD YESTERDAY. THERE MAY BE SOME PATCHY FOG ACROSS EASTERN LANCASTER COUNTY AND THEN UP TOWARDS SELINSGROVE AND MAYBE EVEN NORTHWEST ERN PARTS OF THE AREA LIKE MIFFLIN AND JUNIATA COUNTIES. OTHERWISE, WE’RE LOOKING GOOD. FORECAST CALLS FOR PARTLY TO MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES, A FEW SHOWERS AND THUNDERSHOWERS POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON. STAYING HUMID. TEMPERATURES A LITTLE WARMER THAN YESTERDAY IN THE LOW TO MID 80S. OVERNIGHT TONIGHT, WE MAKE CLEAR OUT FOR A FEW HOURS THIS EVENING. THEN THE CLOUDS BUILD BACK IN. SO MOSTLY CLOUDY TONIGHT. A FEW MORNING SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE MUGGY CONDITIONS WITH LOWS RIGHT AROUND 70 DEGREES. AND THEN TOMORROW. SO AN IMPACT DAY, MOSTLY CLOUDY SHOWERS AND STORMS. SOME OF THOSE COULD BE ON THE SEVERE SIDE. TEMPERATURES WILL CLIMB INTO THE MID 80S. SO THE BEST CHANCE OF THE HIGHEST RISK FOR SEVERE STORMS WILL BE ACROSS YORK AND LANCASTER, WHERE WE’RE HIGHLIGHTED IN A SLIGHT RISK. THAT’S A TWO ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 5, THAT EXTENDS DOWN INTO MARYLAND AND THEN FAR EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA TO THE NORTH AND WEST, WE’RE STILL IN A LOW RISK, WHICH IS A MARGINAL MARGINAL RISK. SO STILL WANT TO KEEP AN EYE ON SOME OF THOSE STORMS AND WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT IS FOR THOSE SCATTERED STORMS TO CROSS THE AREA. WE’RE LOOKING AT THEM TO START OR MOVE IN FROM THE WEST AROUND 2:00 AND THEY’LL CONTINUE TO TRACK ACROSS THE AREA BETWEEN 3 AND 5 ACROSS THE MIDSECTION OF OUR AREA. AND THEN FROM FIVE TO ABOUT NINE IN OUR EASTERN COUNTIES. AND I WOULD SAY THAT GUSTY WINDS ARE THE MAIN THREAT. THERE COULD BE SOME HAIL AND THE TORNADO THREAT IS NOT ZERO, BUT IT IS VERY LOW. BUT STILL, WE COULD SEE A SPIN UP. SO CERTAINLY JUST KEEP THAT IN MIND FOR TOMORROW. TEMPERATURES RIGHT NOW IN THE MID TO UPPER 60S, WE HAVE 67 IN CARLISLE AND CHAMBERSBURG AND THE LANCASTER AND HARRISBURG, 68 IN GETTYSBURG AND IT’S QUIET OUT THERE RIGHT NOW. IT LOOKS LIKE A COUPLE SHOWERS TRYING TO GET GOING HERE UP IN THE MOUNTAINS. AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE DAY, WE’LL SEE A LITTLE BIT MORE IN THE WAY OF CLOUD COVER. THE SYSTEM THAT’S GOING TO BRING US THOSE STORMS TOMORROW. STILL WELL OFF TO THE WEST AND THAT WILL BE MAKING ITS WAY EASTWARD THROUGH THE NIGHT AND INTO THE DAY TOMORROW. SO HERE’S A LOOK AT PREDICTOR. AND HERE’S THIS AFTERNOON. REALLY NOT A WHOLE LOT OF COVERAGE IN TERMS OF THOSE SHOWERS AND STORMS. THAT’S WHY WE JUST HAVE A FEW IN THE FORECAST. BUT JUST KNOW THAT THEY COULD POP UP AND THEN TOMORROW MORNING, THERE COULD BE SOME SHOWERS AROUND IN THE MORNING DRIVE TIME. BUT A BETTER CHANCE AS WE HEAD INTO THE AFTERNOON, WE GET THAT INSTABILITY GOING AND INCREASING AND WE’LL WATCH FOR THOSE STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS TUESDAY, THE UPPER LOW IS STILL JUST OFF TO OUR WEST, SO THERE’S STILL ENOUGH INSTABILITY IN THE ATMOSPHERE THAT WE COULD SEE MORE STORMS DEVELOP FOR TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVEN INTO WEDNESDAY BECAUSE THE UPPER LOW WILL BE RIGHT OVER TOP OF US. SO THAT THREAT IS GOING TO CONTINUE. RAIN CHANCES TOMORROW. WE COULD PICK UP A QUICK QUARTER OF AN INCH TO A HALF AN INCH. BUT IF YOU’RE DOWN TO THE SOUTH AND EAST, YOU GET IN UNDER ONE OF THOSE STORMS. YOU COULD ACTUALLY PICK UP A QUICK INCH OF RAIN. WE WILL BE WATCHING FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF SOME MINOR FLOODING HERE THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW AS WELL THROUGH THE AFTERNOON, I SHOULD SAY. HERE’S YOUR TEN DAY FORECAST STORM. CHANCES CONTINUE WEDNESDAY, JUST AN ISOLATED CHANCE ON THURSDAY. YOU SEE THE TEMPERATURES AFTER MONDAY. AFTER TOMORROW, THEY TREND BELOW AVERAGE. WE’RE TALKING UPPER 70S TO NEAR 80. BY WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. AND THEN WE START TO WAR
