Central PA Spring/Summer 2019

Recommended Posts

I’m in Bellwood right now so i probably won’t have to go anywhere to see what happens with the hook echo on the cell bearing down.

EDIT: I forgot to hit send on this. Ended up going a couple miles south on a hill to get below the hook and have a look. There was definitely rotation but no funnel that I could see.

About 20 minutes ago radar showed 5 tornado warnings in effect...4 up north between IPT and AVP and one down south between LAN and RDG.  There's a parade of thunderstorms marching east from north of PIT right now that looks like it could hit the lower susq region in a few hours.

Same is happening in Pittsburgh. 20 miles north and it's been just a parade of storms.

That’s a good thing !

My end of Perry County has been spared as well so far today.

Me as well. Nary a drop of rain since this morning and I am fine with that!

Here was a screenshot picture off one of the videos I took this afternoon. Looking north toward the hook and the meso crossing over the mountain. I made a good intercept considering I rarely get a chance to do such things around the immediate area. This one wasn’t strong enough to drop a funnel but as I said earlier it did have rotation.

The cell hitting selinsgrove has to be dropping some good sized hail right now

 

i heard golf ball size. A co-worker was driving home and around that area when it hit, he video taped it. the sound of hail hitting his car was nuts.

Another day or two of severe and flooding potential.

Then it really cools off.

I'm liking part 2 of your statement.  First part....natsomuch. 

Mostly dodged here in Ephrata, but all around us got into it.

Re batten down da hatches gang.  2 more days....boo.  I hate the destruction.  I'm a weather geek like the rest of yas, but its why i cant like this stuff and root for it to happen.  Too much pain/loss/cost for too many.  My snow just pisses many off....I'm cool w/ dat.

Stay safe all.

I understand peoples interest in severe weather. Thats why i got into weather in the first place ( being a fireman and all) But once the destruction hits you personally or you witness it up close and see how it really affects people you won't cheer it on.

Dont think my fascination isnt there.  It sure is, but the fury is a sobering thing. Your last statement is so true bud.  We had straight line wind come through 2 years ago and i helped a family friend whose developement was raked by it.  We cut 7 LARGE trees that came down and seeing the destruction in that neighborhood and watching families try to rebuild their lives is just not easy to see.  Some homes became inhabitable because of insurance not helping etc......  Only good was seeing the community come together and when three young ladies/girls came around with baskets of food to feed us responding to aid....well it just chokes you up.  Sorry to derail the thread.  Back to the chase.

And there are some signs that cooler weather might prevail for the first half of June. 2 less weeks of heat and humidity...

Hail all around us last night, we was fortunate no hail here. It ended up being about 2 miles north of us.

Picked up only 0.30" rain overnight...which wasn't bad. Earlier yesterday we picked up .55" with the one storm that came through.

It didn't look to bad on radar but the skies opened up for about 10-15 minutes.

Everyone be safe!!

If we can get to mid June without seeing the temp reach 90, I will be joyed.

Currently we are in Vancouver and leave in an hour so to fly back home  Landing at BWI at 10:50 - hopefully late enough to not fave delay issues  

Flying this spring has been a real pain with all the storms
