Forecasters Predict Storms Possible Through Sunday

STORMS ARRIVE WEDNESDAY NIGHT – Western Montgomery County and the rest of southeastern Pennsylvania have a 90-percent chance of being hit Wednesday (Aug. 18, 2021) night with thunderstorms that carry relatively little new rainfall (between a half and three quarters of an inch), but could be accompanied by gusting winds of up to 20 miles an hour, according to the National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ. The chance of storms during Wednesday daytime hours is far lower, it added. A system of storms that could pass through the area daily until Sunday is primarily due to movement of Tropical Storm Fred, which came ashore Tuesday in Florida. State College-based AccuWeather indicated Fred’s greatest impact (at top) would be in central and northern Pennsylvania, with heaviest rain and stronger winds there.
