National Weather Service
If you think you’ve been seeing and hearing a lot more severe weather lately, you’re right. This April has seen far more tornados than ever before – 886 nationwide and still counting.
A line of storms has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for much of western Pennsylvania and parts of West Virginia and Maryland.
High winds blew out windows, knocked over sheds and damaged several roofs in Templeton, about eight miles north of Kittanning.
The persistent rainy weather we’ve gotten during the month of April has prompted plenty of flooding concern but it’s causing other problems as well.
Heavy rains over the weekend have forced rivers around the area to swell. As a result, the Monday morning commute will be impacted.
Whether we like it or not, most of us are impacted by the federal government, so when it shuts down because Congress and the President cannot agree on how much to fund government services, average citizens may be affected.
The recent storms that moved through the area this week are having an impact on the rivers around Pittsburgh.
Inspectors from the National Weather Service went to Westmoreland County to survey the damage from the tornado.
Officials with the National Weather Service will be touring parts of Westmoreland County today after storms moved through the area Wednesday, leaving behind damage and destruction. The storms brought heavy rain, hail, high winds and funnel cloud sightings to the area.
Western Pennsylvania will see snow before the week is out. That’s on top of the expected flood waters.
There are fresh concerns today over the wet weather after more rain fell overnight, and now with the threat of snow moving into the area.
Soaking rains turned to snow early Sunday and concerns over rising waters continue to grow across the area. Crews were bracing for more flooding Sunday night, while local residents were preparing for a longer commute to work Monday morning.
The month of March is living up to its billing as one of those peak flooding months and that means the National Weather Service is working overtime.
