Tornado Confirmed in York And More Storms Mid Week

Tornado Confirmed in York And More Storms Mid Week

Monday Feb 27 – We have a chilly start to the week as temperatures have dropped below freezing in many places. Another warm up is on the way with a potential for more severe weather. Then flurries possible on Friday. The forecast is below… But first a little recap of Saturday…  The National Weather Service has confirmed that an EF-1 tornado hit northeast York County Saturday with 90 mph winds. More than 60 structures were damaged in Hellam and Wrightsville, but no one was injured.  Here the view near Wrightsville from Ricky Brown.

I had posted this view from southern York County almost 15 minutes before the warning was issued. As you can hear, I was documenting some rotation on the edge of a shelf cloud and wasn’t sure if it was to develop.

 

Here was the storm blowing through with 60 mph winds and hail

Chance of Snow Showers?

The clipper looks like it will pass to our north on Friday. Tracking the path will be critical to see if we can get flurries or snow showers. Don’t expect stickage at this time
