After Damaging Storms Yesterday, More to Come Today


There were a few nasty thunderstorm cells that pulled through the area yesterday. One passed through Montgomery and Bucks counties, before eventually dissipating over New Jersey. The other storms passed through South Jersey, where one death was confirmed by the National Weather Service. Both of these storms created problems for residents in the Philadelphia area. There was one report of a house almost catching on fire from a lightning strike in Newtown, PA. In Hatboro, PA there were reports of multiple trees down, and in Ocean County, NJ, there were reports of power lines down.

The storms that hit yesterday, as I said in yesterdays post, were scattered. It will be a similar story today. Right now skies are cloudy in much of the area, but as the clouds burn off during the day, strong thunderstorms will pop up during the afternoon hours. These storms will look similar to the ones that hit yesterday. I would expect strong winds, hail, and some minor rotation where they hit.

I will update as the day progresses
