Severe thunderstorms approaching the Harrisburg area

Weather Authority: Gusty showers, thunderstorms ahead

Tornado watch issued for part of NJ as storms sweep across state

Temps should get into the upper 70s and low 80s head of the front, but as it moves in, expect a good chance for showers and thunderstorms.

Another storm system is expected to move in Friday and Saturday.

There are a lot of shower and storm chances for the week ahead. Today's high will be 87 with a south southwest wind of 5 to 11 miles per hour, and new rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch.

Meteorologist John Homenuk of New York Metroweather said severe thunderstorms and potentially strong wind gusts, large hail, unsafe lightning and "even a tornado or two" could develop later in the day in Pennsylvania and Southern New York. At 1:20 a.m. Friday, the Central Nebraska Regional Airport in Grand Island reported a peak wind speed of 64 miles per hour.

"Scattered severe thunderstorms with damaging wind gusts and large hail are possible this afternoon and evening", NWS said in a Hazardous Weather Outlook statement.

One final round of storms is possible after midnight, the weather service said. The main threat is damaging, straight-line wind (30 percent chance), possibly from a squall line moving out of Ohio/West Virginia. Some threat may extend downstream out of the watch into northern IN/southwest MI, but no watch issuance is expected in that area at this time. Highs Tuesday are forecast in the low to mid 80's.
