Philadelphia Weather: Severe Storms Threatened Monday

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Monday is NEXT Weather Alert Day with the risk of severe storms in the Philadelphia area in the afternoon and evening.

The storm could bring damaging winds, with the possibility of a few tornadoes, as well as heavy downpours, which could lead to localized flooding in towns and small streams. There are also concerns about hail.


Several disturbances will move across our area on Monday, culminating in a strong cold front late Monday night. Unsteady atmospheric conditions will be greatest between late afternoon and late evening for rotation and severe storm development.

The greatest risk for damaging winds and possible tornadoes is generally along and west of Trenton to Philadelphia, and the Georgetown line, according to the National Weather Service.

The storm is expected to pass through the area in the evening, with the greatest risk between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. During the early and afternoon Mondays, the threat is less.
