The NWS of State College just issued the following Public Information Statement in regards the the storm that moved through the Hometown/Tamaqua Area on September 13, 2021. 

The National Weather Service in collaboration with Schuylkill County Emergency Management confirmed a downburst wind event occurred near Hometown from 8:28 PM EDT through 8:30 PM EDT on Monday, September 13, 2021.

Estimated Peak Wind: 75 mph
Path Length /statute/: 3.1 miles
Path Width /maximum/: 100 yards
Fatalities: 0
Injuries: 0

Start Date: September 13, 2021
Start Time: 8:28 PM EDT
Start Location: 2.5 miles northwest of Hometown
Start Lat/Lon: 40.8399/-76.0237

End Date: September 13, 2021
End Time: 8:30 PM EDT
End Location: 0.5 mile east of Hometown
End Lat/Lon: 40.8236/-75.9686

A corridor of downburst wind damage was found near and northwest of Hometown in Schuylkill County. This damage began along Fairview Street about 2.5 miles northwest of Hometown, consisting of several trees being blown down along with a corn field being flattened. This occurred as thunderstorm outflow winds rushed downward toward the ground and subsequently spread out upon impact with the ground. A nearby Road Weather Information System (RWIS) observation near Delano along Interstate 81 reported a 68 mph wind gust, further suggesting maximum wind speeds of near 75 mph where the downburst occurred. Numerous trees were also downed in and around Hometown, including many falling onto utility lines. Damage continued east of the State Route 309 and 54 intersection, before becoming much less significant farther southeast.

The Euro did have some good stuff too, like upper 50s/low 60s a couple days next week. 18z GFS turned my 38 into a 73 and has another ridge going, but seems to be a progressive pattern.

GFS looks pretty good this AM.  Headed out today so no 12Z run down from me but happy with 6Z.
