5:00 pm
the last -- just about the last hour it's going all the way through chester county and into upper montgomery county and now moving right over the northeast extension. >> dave, we're get something social media reports coming in. one of our photographers colton white shot video near downington i'm assuming that's near the affected areas there. heavy rain, heavy wind there. we're also seeing a lot of people there out and about. number one, the peak of rush hour right now. so a lot of people are out on the roads. so be careful if you're driving home. also, i'm seeing reports of people at high school football games beginning to filter in to stadiums there. so please text those people to be sure if you're in that area near the top of the blue route near the norristown area, please get inside. heed these warnings. tornado warning means that rotation is eminent. that a tornado could be --
5:01 pm
conditions are ripe for a tornado and, dave, let's see. where exactly should we be telling people to kind of hunker down right now? >> okay. this is the heaviest rain right around norristown. so as it continues to move east, it's right between there. norristown and the northeast extension and the blue route. so this is around conshohocken and close to radnor about to see that heavy rain. this is just outside of that tornado warning area. but a little farther north, northeast extension up towards upper doubling are lynn and whitpain township there so that's right around blue bell. little farther north it looks like, yeah, up towards north wales. upper gwynned, towamencin and lansdale big city right along the -- right along 309, and 63, so this is very populate populaa and certainly like you said a lot of football games getting underway. people head outside. it was just cloudy but now as
5:02 pm
these storms roll on through at 45 miles an hour, it can quickly turn from calm to just very damaging wind. dangerous situation. so the rotation detected and a warning in effect until 5:15. but this is the storm that was responsible for it. about to approach the end of that warning box so what's going to happen here, easily before 5:15 either extend the warning a little farther east or the rotation which was first seen on the radar may not be there any more. so even if they let this tornado warning expire you can see that the entire area is still under a severe thunderstorm warning. that goes all the way in through philadelphia towards bensalem. that is for the damaging wind and the very heavy rain. maybe even some small hail but the latest shows that really not seeing that sheer any more. the first indicated that rotation, that's why it was blue there right through pottstown and then they issued the warning so really not seeing that
5:03 pm
rotation signature any more. but certainly the warning remains in effect and the radar is almost at the end of the warning box but still you can still easily get a wind gust to 60, 70 miles an hour. not associated with a tornado still very dangerous. that's why the warning remains in effect there through norristown we're continuing to watch this. it's right about at the end of the warning box there. right through the northeast extension and this is just about to push into plymouth meeting as the big interchange from 76 to the blue route there. just north of conshohocken. conshohocken getting very heavy rain now. very very heavy rain in upper merion through tredyffrin township down through west chester down along 202. this continues to push through the area and we'll certainly continue to monitor this, but it will certainly worth watching as this tornado warning remains in effect and that is until 5:15
5:04 pm
but you can see the storm about to push to the end of this warning box. damaging wind likely. no matter if you're or out this tornado warning err. certainly get inside from delaware county, marple all the way up through plymouth meeting and continuing to go up through montville and into bucks county. elsewhere we do have strong storms through chester county and in through upper bucks, but, yeah, certainly want to be able to get inside because it happens quickly. moving fast. just the last about hour and you can see how quickly this storm has moved. it's pushing east about 45 miles an hour. so just in one hour it will likely be closer to abington and in through philadelphia county as well in through bensalem. so this is pushing right 42 philadelphia now. the tornado warning still in effect for another 10 minutes. but this is right at the edge of this warning box. still seeing damaging wind in through delaware county now and in through philadelphia county and portions of montgomery
5:05 pm
county. so watching this closely. latest rada ray heaviest storm w right over conshohocken, and in through radnor right along delaware county there. so if you're out in this area, very very heavy rain, wind damage likely. we've had uproo uprooted trees n lancaster county and, yeah, so it's moving fast. >> dave, we want to stay with this only because people when there's a tornado warning, that means conditions are eminent. there could be rotation and people are could be in danger. so that is when there's a tornado warning we stay with this coverage. we want to show you some video up there in the top left side of your screen. that is video from downington just a little while ago sent in by photographer colton white our crews are out there now. once again this is a fast-moving storm and, again, we told people a lot of people, high school athletes headed to football games tonight, friday night football, so stay in.
5:06 pm
i think plymouth white marsh has a game. we just heard from them. you might want to just stay indoors until this thing has passed. >> dave, you were mentioning the high winds. trees are being uprooted so it's really important to be careful because with these drenching rains and high winds, trees can come come tumbling down. wires can fall. utility poles can be brought down. so if you don't have to go out right now and you live in that area, it's a good idea to take some shelter. >> we always ask people, too, if do you see some of this damage or some of this weather coming in from the safety of your hom homes, please put it on social media. tweet us at fox 29 philly. you can send it to our facebook page, of course, you are our eyes and ears out there when it comes to weather coverage. we have something now coming in from west chester, is that rig right? >> this picture. dave, maybe you can explain this. looks like a shelf cloud to me. >> when you get these -- it goes from pretty much nothing to a strong storm with very heavy
5:07 pm
rain. so out ahead of that the winds blowing out of the storm you can actually see this -- the area air rising and you get a cloud like this. certainly looks like a shelf cloud is what it is, and that is the very leading edge of this wind flowing out of the storms. it causes a cloud formation like this. so when you see something like this, it's evident of very strong wind, very heavy rain, and fast mover it's going from clear just maybe high thin clouds to stormy weather in just a matter of minutes with these storms moving at 45 miles an hour and the heaviest storm now still is right over plymouth meeting and will continue to push east there in through philadelphia county. >> thanks to our viewer jason for sending us that picture. we welcome more pictures as you mentioned, chris, if you can take them videos, pictures from the safety of your home, please send them to us at so right now, what is the threat now we're looking at? is this thing still spinning out
5:08 pm
there, dave? >> yeah. we have tornado warning still in effect but i really look like,, what they saw here the national weather service had this rotation detected. that's indicated by this blue color here, and it really does sort of break up and fall apart. so likely not seeing this rotation here likely not seeing this warning extended. they did see the rotation initially. now, even outside of that tornado warning this whole yellow box is a severe thunderstorm warning because along with the rotation, when you see a radar that has this bow shape to it as it bowes out a little bit, that's an indication of very damaging wind, very strong wind. so when you get this type of shape here, that bow shape on the radar, that's an indication of very damaging wind. we've had wind gusts reported uprooted trees in lancaster county. so as it continues to put east. may not see this warning exten
5:09 pm
extended. in fact the rain, the storm is practically out of the warning box already. that's how quickly it's moved. likely this warning which is in effect for another seven minutes may just expire. but still the severe thunderstorm warning, that remains in effect here until 5:30. so we're in for another 17 minutes here with this warning because of the damaging wind she's strong severe storms. just as dangerous likely as this tornado you can still get that very powerful wind gust close to 60 miles an hour and certainly looks like we're getting that with the radar shot like this. but it will continue to move at 45 miles an hour. again i think the strongest part of the storm here is right in montgomery county. just right over plymouth meeting just pushed to the east there i'll zoom in and show you exactly where it looks to be the strongest, and right through here in upper dublin, right into abington. this is right along 309 there. it's moving right over 309 between upper dublin and the
5:10 pm
turnpike, and then as it goes into montgomery county and eventually through philadelphia, the closer view in abington right along 63 upper moreland in horsham. about to get this very powerful storm with damaging wind. but the very heavy rain right practically right over -- this is right over couldn't hock cep here right on the schuylkill expressway and the blue route. right along 23. this is a big interchange here. very heavy wind -- heavy rain and damaging wind is still in that tornado warning area and possibly seeing some of these storms continue to try to rota rotate, but i think the strongest rotation was already detected and now the storm is practically out of the warning box but still severe thunderstorm warning remains in effect through abington and right through cheltenham. this is about to move into northeast philly here. moving at 45 miles an hour. so it will be there very soon. >> dave, i know a lot of times when we cover these tornadoes, there could be some wind damage, but not necessarily from the tornado, the rotation. straight line winds are just as
5:11 pm
dangerous. >> yeah. often a lot of times when we talk about tornado warning this whole area seeing winds close to 60, 70 miles an hour it's uprooted many trees in land cost county this is where this whole complex started right out there in lancaster county. we've had some local storm reports here, and this shows where the wind damage and the trees were uprooted in lancaster county and right just into chester county had a damaging wind gust there but a lot of the damages occurred. we'll see more reports likely coming in as they continue to go out and survey the damage. but still, a severe thunderstorm warning until 5:30. this going right through glenside now and it's pretty much right in the center of delaware county. right over the blue route about to push towards i think that is route 1 there that goes right through delaware county, and out towards granite run and just north of media, and out into chester county. so this is very heavy rain and it goes from practically nothing like there in upper darby to heavy rain in marple.
5:12 pm
that's not a long drive and these are moving at 45 miles an hour. quite a few football games happening right about now. a lot of parking lots full and it looks clear and then all of a sudden it's rain and wind. so likely serious situation. >> dave, how much rain exactly are we talking? i mean heavy downpours. i mean, it could be a serious situation. could we see some flooding? >> maybe localized flooding poor drainage areas. this is moving so fast it doesn't dumb app lot of rain all at once. just areas typically get the flooding with some poor drainage but that should easily clear out. so maybe a little flooding but certainly a lot of wind and everybody in this area in the warning box is seeing this damaging wind likely. that's why the warning remains in effect until 5:30. very heavy storm now it looks like it's right around conshohocken. interesting radar pattern here, and see this could be this rotation that they see right near that corner area. the red and the green looking at the wind how it goes through the radar and that's how they detect
5:13 pm
this rotation, and so that could be the big thing that they saw. this is the storm that they saw move through. again, but rotation really starting to fall apart. so likely damaging wind. maybe not seeing this tornado warning extended. it expires here in just about two minutes. >> so after that, dave, it looks like two minutes that may expire. what comes after that? you say we have severe thunderstorm warning until 5:30. so this thing still moving. >> right. even through 5:30 and the area of concern now i think will be right through philadelphia upper darby and media. they are just about to see that heavy rain move in. severe thunderstorm warning goes all the way in through center city here and right along the roosevelt boulevard there through philadelphia and it does go right down towards the airport. so a large area still under a severe thunderstorm warning and it's this leading edge where you often see this wind damage so we're right there.
5:14 pm
this is through dresher and glenside, and now we're going into philadelphia. west manayunk and lower merion and montgomery county that little sliver of montgomery county that splits philadelphia and delaware county, and there's route 3, west chester pike, right through marple, and into havertown, right along the blue route and there's route 1, township line road, and that's just about to move into drexel hill. so upper darby is not seeing anything, but then just a short drive north you get that very heavy rain. this is where you're getting that wind damage likely just a leading edge of this storm here as it goes from practically nothing in upper darby to a lot of rain in delaware county. that's where you're seeing that straight line wind likely. >> i think it catches people off guard, dave, when we see this kind of a storm, because like you said, there's nothing in some spots and then all of a sudden it just moves in with this heavy rain and these high winds and catches people off guard. >> yes. >> it can be very very dangero dangerous. >> fast-moving storm, certainly.
5:15 pm
45 miles an hour. that's fast. so it's going from nothing to that here very quickly. the tornado warning just expired. so likely not -- they would have issued something out ahead of it or extended it if there was that danger for rotation but not seeing the rotation now, but we still have these strong storms that are producing damaging wind. have a history of that through lancaster and into chester county and now it's right in the center of delaware county into montgomery county and about to push into portions of philadelphia. >> you're seeing the top left side of your screen that is the shot from northeast philadelph philadelphia. i'm assuming that's probably the leading edge of what we're going to see here in a few minutes. that is from northeast philadelphia. you see some wind gusts there. i don't even know if it's even raining there. you said this is a fast mover. this could go in and out pretty quick. >> not going to last a long time but it's that initial wind gust that's producing these damage reports, and that will be in right through northeast
5:16 pm
philadelphia. you get the wind, you get the clouds, that shelf cloud maybe, the wind, very heavy rain then it will be all gone later tonight. it's just that one little area that's of concern. >> dave, could flights in and out of philadelphia international airport be impacted right now because of what's happening here? >> the likely -- they -- likely they will have to slow things down or just put a little pause on. this will move through so there could be a little delay. maybe a ground stop as these storms roll through with this damaging wind. that's the big -- big concern. so maybe just a brief -- >> the airport is in its path at the moment, right. >> right. there could be a brief disruption but certainly later tonight everything will be back to normal. >> again we're following social media. looking at what you are telling us. so far, we have no reports of damage as of yet. of course, those come as the storm rolls through. but we're checking with our assignment desk. but so far no -- i'm getting word right now as we speak, no
5:17 pm
damage that we're aware of just yet. but then, again, it is still early. please, be safe. this is still could be a potentially damaging storm that tornado warning has now expired. but dave l could be still storms behind that you say. >> correct. the severe thunderstorm warning remains in effect. that could easily just produce as many damage reports have already been issued and right now that leading edge of this powerful wind is right around montgomery -- just through montgomery county pushing into philadelphia and that one little section of montgomery county towards northeast philadelphia and delaware county as well. >> all right. we'll take break and we'll be right back. keep it here.
5:18 pm
5:19 pm

seeing damaging wind likely. no rotation, no tornado warnings in effect, but this is a severe thunderstorm warning and it's for this type of radar signature. when it looks like on the radar when it starts to bow out a little bit right at this leading edge which is moving into philadelphia right along the roosevelt boulevard right into portions of philadelphia around manayunk and just out of delaware county right into the city of philadelphia and portions of montgomery county likely seeing wind damage here as this wind could be gusting 50, 60 miles an hour. that's why the severe thunderstorm warning is issued. right along the blue route through springfield, upper darby now getting heavy rain p these are moving at 45 miles an hour so it goes from calm weather to damaging winds in just a matter of minutes it seems here and still with this line holding together, that is producing damaging wind. that's why the warning in effect these storms are moving fast. right at the edge of that warning box. likely as they look like they're holding together. we'll see this warning extended into areas of new jersey around
