Severe weather could roll across Central PA this evening and some of those thunderstorms could be supercells. According to PennLive.com, a low pressure system is expected to move across the state in the afternoon and evening hours and conditions will be right for severe thunderstorms to develop. Supercells are the least common type of storm, but have had the capacity of producing damaging winds, very large hail and weak to violent tornadoes. A separate updraft and downdraft enable supercells to last longer. While today’s storms may be severe, precipitation amounts over the course of the day are expected to be less than an inch. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with the latest from Accuweather and the National Weather Service.
