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
