Spring Storms Pass Through Local Counties

By: Dennis Bowman

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A wave of spring storms is moving through the area.

There will be showers and storms into the early evening that will include brief downpours with some lightning and the possibility of damaging wind gusts.
Isolated hail is possible.

The stronger storms could hit south of the City of Pittsburgh.

“The reason being, we’ve had a lot of clouds around throughout the day today and we’ve also seen several rounds of showers, so far,” KDKA Chief Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla said. “Every round of showers that comes through zaps a little bit of energy out of the atmosphere so that means the next round that tries to come through likely is less energetic than the one previously.”

In high winds and tornadoes, stay inside and away from windows. The basement or lowest floor are the safest places to be. Also, interior hallways, closets, and bathrooms offer great protection.

Remember that if you can hear thunder, you are already close enough to the storm to be struck by lightning. As the saying goes, “when thunder roars, go indoors,” and never drive through a flooded road.

    Heavens….Not another storm….Our neighbors in Hempfield are still trying to recover from last week’s tornado. Keeping my fingers crossed that it misses us or ends up being just an average storm.
