Severe Storm Approaching the Philadelphia Area tomorrow that may produce wind damage, hail, and major amounts of rain.
A storm system, still young over the Deep South Sunday, will head towards the East Coast. It will bring a good deal of rain and high winds to nearly a dozen states over the next few days. Philadelphia, PA could be looking at a couple of inches of precipitation by Wednesday and sustain wind damage and hail damage.
Rainfall deficits across the region differ significantly. Including Sunday, Philadelphia’s rainfall since January 1st is about ten inches below normal. It’s a result of typical summer rainfall that can be selective, especially in thunderstorms. Parts of Pennsylvania have been hit a few times since July 1st with flooding rains, Philadelphia escape with quick moving storms.
A widespread rainfall may change the deficits a bit this upcoming work week. A storm system is gathering energy and moisture over the Ark-La-Tex region into Monday and will head up the Appalachian Range, picking up an abundance of tropical moisture along with it.
For Philadelphia and surrounding region, clouds increase Monday with mild temperatures. Showers should arrive late Monday night, making for a wet commute Tuesday morning. During the day Tuesday, it’s feast or famine, as determined by the computer models. Showers could be on and off throughout the day, or come to an end and become isolated until nightfall. The latter result may feature a break or two of sun. Strong southerly winds bring in higher levels of humidity.
A squall line of thunderstorms is forecast to approach the city in the evening, with the timing to be determined. As of Sunday night, the forecast models have the timing between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. Tuesday night. This squall line will bring heavy rain and gusty, possibly damaging winds to Long Island.
