Although storms are dangerous, we, the Pennsylvania Storm Chasers, like to document them safely. And we have had a long severe weather week, with many storms. 139 warnings were issued by 4 NWS offices in eight days, covering most of the state and including 123 Severe Thunderstorm Warnings:
The highlight of my week was on May 30 -- the AccuWeather HQ Shelf Cloud -- but I've talked about that already.
I also got a couple of kind-of-cool multi-part lightning strikes on video on May 27 and June 3:
And an assortment of rainbow and cloud photos on June 3rd. But the big news was what the other PA chasers got -- like this video which shows a vertical cloud structure from Justin Steiner on June 1 near Yorkana, Pa., or Ron Shawley's time-lapse video that may show a tornado with the storm that dropped one at Ligonier, Pa.:
I'll also give an honorable mention to Ron's "Rainbows & Wind Turbines" shot near Johnstown. And even AccuWeather VP Elliot Abrams snagged this rainbow shot Monday:
It's been an interesting weather day here at the beach in Oak Island, N.C.
By the looks of these two maps, it's about time for my annual beach vacation week at Oak Island, N.C.
Multiple waterspouts were reported this morning on the Chesapeake Bay this morning, while a landspout prompted a Tornado Warning yesterday in Iowa.
In 1997, I blogged about Hurricane Linda, a powerful hurricane moving over Socorro Island. Last night, something very similar happened.
The NWS has confirmed three tornadoes in Pennsylvania on Wednesday.
This will be one of the most severe days of 2015 in Pennsylvania; the public needs to take this one seriously.
