4/14 - 4/15 Heavy Rain and Squall Line Thread

Recommended Posts

Good thunder storm as far as rain and wind. There was some decent flashes but they were to far away as really no thunder.

Winds took off top half of my small tree in front yard and blew over full pail of garbage waiting to be picked up and then moved it a few feet down the street. Can only imagine where it would be if they already picked up and it was empty.

Wonder if I will see some other minor tree damage when I leave for work in an hour.

That was a pretty good t-storm, plenty of thunder, some lightning, a good couple of minutes of strong wind and a whole bunch of rain in a short time. Looks like .7-.75" and I only lost a few branches off the tallest trees.

The convection really blossomed around midnight when the line was near State College, producing lots of lightning. I knew it was going to be an early morning wake up call. Sounded like a car bomb went off outside at 4:15.

PA continues to run ahead of OK in the tornado count. The 3 tornadoes in PA with this storm plus the one in January gives them 4 on the year so far.

Do you think this is flukey the last couple years, or could climate change be making tornadoes more common in PA?

The general pattern has been decreasing tornadoes in the Plains with an increase to the east. The last few years may just be an extreme version superimposed on this general trend.
