Thunderstorms Popping For Second Round For Some
While we are still at risk for severe thunderstorm activity, the risk level for that isn't as high as the threat for heavy rains. Most locations picked up at least a half inch of rain this morning -- some spots picked up over an inch and a half (Doylestown) from morning thunderstorm activity. Any thunderstorm that fires up this afternoon or evening could be locally strong or severe -- with more heavy rainfall possible in spots.
Computer modeling suggests that the best chances for this will be to our west -- Central PA into Berks County and the Lehigh Valley seem to be one area of potential focus for later on this evening. Farther east into Philadelphia, a storm or two is certainly possible but the timing for any line of thunderstorms that originates out in Central PA will likely be after sunset, which would mitigate the severe weather threat around here. If you're heading to the Phillies game, it doesn't look like a total washout but delays and raindrop dodging certainly are possible during the course of the evening.
