***TORNADO WATCH IN EFFECT FOR LUZERNE AND PIKE COUNTIES UNTIL 10 PM***
***SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH FOR THE VIEWING AREA UNTIL 10 PM***
After a relatively quiet morning, a line of shower and strong thunderstorms developed Friday afternoon causing the National Weather Service to issue multiple Severe Thunderstorm Warnings for the threat of strong winds and hail. Showers and strong thunderstorms will continue to affect the viewing area this evening, before tapering off and leaving us with patchy clouds as we head into the weekend. However, while those storms are here damaging winds and hail are possible so please use caution when dealing with them. Rainfall totals from this event will generally be around .25", but a quickly 1" to 2" with a heavy storm is certainly possible. Overnight lows will fall to around 60 degrees.
The weekend is looking very pleasant at this point with a good deal of sunshine and highs in the 80s both Saturday and Sunday. Monday looks mainly dry with a mix of clouds and sun, but we're watching the potential for a shower or thunderstorm Monday night. It will depend how far north a boundary to our south sets up, but at this point, any activity may hold off until after fireworks displays. Stay tuned for updates.
