We're under a SLIGHT RISK for severe storms Thursday
A few upper level disturbances will move across the region on Thursday. The warm front early in the day could spark a few showers, or heavy downpours. These storms should stay below severe limits. However, as the day heats up and winds from the south transport in more humidity the atmosphere will become more unstable. Storms that develop through the afternoon or evening will have a better chance of becoming strong to severe. The main threats appear to be strong winds and the potential for hail. The boundary will get hung up across the Commonwealth and be the focal point for training showers & thunderstorms over the same areas - this could cause areas of flash flooding. The trailing cold front moves through Friday and strong to severe thunderstorms will again be possible.
