5:07 pm
you need to let them know. if you are in these areas you want to be in interior room or basement. hopefully you are there already because that is where you want to head in a storm like this. we're talking strong damaging straight line wind in addition to the risk for a tornado on the ground, in portions of our area right now. back to where we are, looking at, join you back on set and show you a as this storm moves east it is continuing to maintain that hook echo, that shape that we always look for on our radar picture, signature shape of the tornado, here it is moving through chester, montgomery counties, right in the head of that hook that comma shape you see there in the head of the comma is where we are concern a tornado could be on the ground at the moment if not strong damaging straight line wind in excess have of 70 or 75 miles an hour. now starting to have move further east, abington heading quickly toward philadelphia this is moving right through main line at the moment. very strong wind capable of downing those trees and power lines and, of course, branches down all a across the region.
5:08 pm
that could lead to major snarls on the roadway, trees falling as people are out on the road. this is not something you want to take lightly tell them to get off the road, pull over to the side and wait this out. it is moving quickly but with the storm moving that quickly you see indication that we could be looking at very, very strong wind and damaging win gust was this particular cell. again here's the velocity signatures showing where that rotation is being picked up by doppler radar across portions of central montgomery county. norristown, moving just further east of your a area, upper providence still dealing with this. it stems down into chester county as well. that is not under a tornado warning that far south but this entire region is. we will go back to where that tornado is a at the moment. forgive me as i cycle through these graphics, some of which are old as storm moves quickly to the east but we're expecting this to be in philadelphia by 5:30 this evening. hopefully tornado warning will expire by then but
5:09 pm
conshohocken, gulph mills, mill road, a all in part of the tornado warning at the moment. lets see if lauren can zoom that out so we can see where that tornado warning is. the it is moving from western montgomery county, into eastern montgomery county and portions of northern chester county as well. we will try to zoom this out and show what you we are looking at. i will step that off a so you can see the scope of this tornado warning. this ace very populated a area. a lot of times we see these tornado warnings and they are well off to the west, not lot of people impact about this. you are talking about a tornado warning moving in the greater philadelphia metro area right at a friday afternoon rush hour. pretty much cannot be a worst time for this to happen. there you are, there is tornado warning. here's what we're dealing with right now. we're seeing again these storms moving east as we go through the course of the afternoon and we will continue to monitor them moving through the day but zooming out you can see our severe thunderstorm warning in effect, if you are, in this
5:10 pm
zone, a act now. go to the basement. go to any interior room. stay away from windows. let people know that may be out on the roadways if they need to get off the roadways if they are in this area joining me from the weather center meteorologist lauren casey, welcome to philadelphia, an active situation. >> very active. these storms are firing up over central pennsylvania, and we had sunshine here for the first half of the day that but that worked against us because it destabilized the atmosphere, gave more juice to the storms and we are seeing them very intense at this time as they continue to move parts of the eastern pennsylvania and will cross the river into parts of the new jersey. so we have five more minutes of that active tornado warning, of course, a warning means the threat is eminent on going so you need to take action. we have that severe thunderstorm watch in effect for the next couple of hours. we will continue to monitor things but right now we need to be acting because that tornado warning is in effect for the next five minutes. for parts of the area.
5:11 pm
our entire area is and that severe thunderstorm watch until 8:00 this evening. we are keying with severe thunderstorm warnings and primary concern this tornado warning ine fact for parts of the area right now, ongoing for about the next four minutes. this is doppler radar indicated, so there is some indication on the roads, on the radar that there is some rotation embedded within this severe thunderstorm. in reports coming down owe far of confirmation of the tornado on the ground but we are dealing with heavy rainfall all around that cell, so indeed, as kate was mentioning that tornado could be rain wrapped and very difficult to confirm whether or not the tornado is on the ground. so you need to act as if such, as if that tornado/the ground right the now but we only have, radar indication that is is there rotation with than this cell but these storms have impacting a punch a as they continue to move eastbound at the 35 to 45 miles an hour.
5:12 pm
we have seen numerous wyndam age reports, particularly in parts of the chester and berks county, numerous trees down, also some wires down, in parts of the chester county as well. so these absent of the tornado warning or tornado threat we still do have wind that will create damage 65 to 70 miles per hour, as this line of storms, continues to race at about 40 miles an hour, kate good and lauren, we are hearing that we have a report of a tree on a home, this is in royersford, montgomery county. an area that does have large trees this entire region blanketed with these large trees and tree on a home in lawyers for, montgomery county. i want to take you back to the the storm scan three and we are tracking from the center of the cell to see where it is going, it is moving very quickly. if you are in abington by 5:32 this storm will be overhead. bensalem, 5:46. the mount laurel, 5:56. pemberton at 6:10. looking as destabilization of
5:13 pm
the atmosphere it was a little more pronounced over southeastern pennsylvania. as it moves into new jersey this cell should weaken a little bit but it is moving quickly, keeping its strength and its speed and that is why we are concern about that tornado warning continuing to be extended a a this cell moves east. right now it has not been extended. it has in the been canceled. it is still in effect tornado warning. let's query this and see what we are dealing with here. right now we are looking at eastern half of the tornado warning, western half most of the worst of it has passed for you but in norristown, conshohocken in the main line, in gulph mills, villanova, in bryn mawr, places like this this is heading your way and then we will start to deal with this cell moving in the greater philadelphia metro area right at the time of the rush hour. a lot of people outside on the roadways and it is moving quickly in the philadelphia area so again we cannot show this enough, tornado warning in effect act now, head to the basement, head to any interior room. already report of the tree on a home and lauren, you have
5:14 pm
been getting other reports as well what are you seeing. >> wind damage reports so far. numerous trees down, wires down, latest update national weather service has expired that tornado warning for chester and montgomery counties, so good news there. the warning is expired. our graphic should update any second with that warning being expired but we still do have that strong intense damaging win threat. we have an active severe thunderstorm warning in effect for parts of the area as well. that severe thunderstorm warning in effect for berks, chester, delaware and montgomery and philadelphia counties until 5:30. center city philadelphia is included within that severe thunderstorm warning for the possibility of the wind in excess of 65 miles per hour. i think that is primary threat ongoing for next couple of hours as this line of severe storms continue to that verse the area i will turn it over to you kate and we will talk more about this severe weather threat as we head into the evening hours. the storm, good news, they should move out by late
5:15 pm
evening hours but it will be a busy next couple of hours that we will to have stay weather a aware. >> that is right. as lauren said this is allowed to expire now 5:15 was expiration time. we have hit 55:00. so this warning if we look up, at our graphics again it should be expiring which goodies news. they are saying cell that prompted this tornado warning has moved out of the region. it is not tornadic, and it is just yellow, that is a severe thunderstorm warning that does include philadelphia but tornado warnings for chester and montgomery counties has expired. national weather service saying that the storm that prompt that had tornado warning is no longer tornadic and moved out of the area. so as of right now threat for tornadoes has diminish, threat for straight line damaging wind, wind in excess of 65 to 70 miles an hour that threat does continue as this system moves in the greater philadelphia area you can see where it is, right now this entire line and look at how quickly this storm proliferated, it the blew up over portions of lancaster
5:16 pm
county. you can see it moving into philadelphia, starting to form in on one long line and that is what i said 15 or 20 minutes. we were hoping that would happen. if you see these discrete super cells moving through the the area that is where you see risk for a tornado when a storm goes off on its own, that will bring you biggest risk of a tornado. when a line of storms you still have risk for strong damaging straight line wind in excess of 65, 70 miles an hour but as this cell connects to the line further south threat for tornadoes diminishes, and threat for straight line wind does not. this line is moving. moving at 40 to 45 miles per hour, to the east, so we still have the risk. we are not out of the wood yet. tornado warning has expire. tornado warning for chester, montgomery counties no longer in effect. severe thunderstorm warnings remain. you can see that hook shape, i'm still very concern. even though tornado warning moved out very concerned about this bow echo shape, this
5:17 pm
comma shape moving through southern montgomery county. look at that lightening witt. take a look at that rain moving through. we had a report of the tree on a home. this is an area full of old trees. of course, full of cars as well on the pennsylvania turnpike right here on the blue route, of course, on 76 and we have ton vigilant this evening. here's our severe thunderstorm warning in effect for the region still for montgomery county, through philadelphia counties a and that goes right through to this evening and severe thunderstorm watch for the entire region. they have issued this as of today, as of earlier this afternoon, showers maybe a few gusty thunderstorm but national weather service saw this threat intensifying as they storms turned nasty in central parks issued severe thunderstorm watch until 8:00 p.m. for vast majority of the region. main threat damaging wind in excess of 60 or 65 miles per hour but the storm on these storms is insane moving through. they are picking up speed as they move through the the area and that is our main threat
5:18 pm
throughout the rest of tonight what to expect for the rest of the afternoon line of gusting thunderstorms, blinding downpours with these. if you are outside on the road you will not be able to see in front have of you. may be best to put your flashers on, pull off the road. you are in an interior room, you are safe. but if you know someone heading home from work we are looking at everything, changing, a as we go through the rest of the afternoon. i'm hearing we are ending our broadcast on the cw philly. for more coverage switch over if you are watching us on the cw philly to our sister station cbs-3, here on cbs-3 we will continue to stay with us. this line of storms continues to purpose in south jersey and delaware moving toward the 6:00 o'clock hour. instability over that a area not as pronounced a as it was through philadelphia and northwestern suburbs but this will still produce risk for dangerous included to ground lightening, very heavy rain, straight line wind and threat for hail moving through new jersey. that will be expect to move through at 6:00 tonight. severe thunderstorm warnings in effect that does include
5:19 pm
philadelphia, delaware county, as this line moves through. here's a look. we are embedded in that is he versace thunderstorm warning at the moment. good news is tornado warning has expired, that does not mean threat is over. here that is hook, that line of nasty thunderstorms moving right into philadelphia it is moving through main line right now. in bala cynwyd, ardmore, in any of these areas in havertown, portions of delaware county you are seeing not only very heavy rain, dangerous cloud to ground lightening and threat for small mail but by far biggest threat with these storms damaging straight line wind now. still cannot rule out rotation but this is always seemed a straight line win threat. we had that hook echo. we will go back and analyze any damage path attorney find to see if a tornado touched down across the air were but as of now tornado warning expired. national weather service saying storm that prompt that had tornado warning is no longer tornadic. you can see how this line is meeting. we will see more degrading, a wearing down of that hook
5:20 pm
shape over portions of montgomery county. once it does, once it turns into one straight line, straight line wind damage will be biggest threat as well as heavy rain. you can see red shading embedded in this line of storms moving through north jersey all the way through the philadelphia suburbs, right now, north and western suburbs and now starting to push in delaware as well. if you are on i95 you have not the scene much but you are about to see it start to move on through. we will show you what we are looking at here. a as we you'll in the the closest showers and thunderstorms just starting to push into the philadelphia area do i expect we will begin to see those storms moving through with very strong gusty winds any minute now in philadelphia lets look at severe thunderstorm warning is at the moment. this does include philadelphia, notice where philadelphia, marple, norristown, back towered pottstown, those areas to the west, threat for severe weather has largely ended. but now again, 2.99 million people in this severe thunderstorm warning at the moment, a warning means it is
