Severe thunderstorms approaching the Harrisburg area

In the severe thunderstorm watch issued for the area through 9 p.m., the National Weather Service is calling for the potential for "widespread damaging winds and isolated significant gusts to 75 miles per hour".

Rain will linger for at least another hour around the metro area, perhaps lasting until late evening, but there's no more severe activity heading our way.

Jensenius said his team observed downed trees and tree limbs, and several damaged vehicles in communities located along the tornado's path.

Some damaging wind gusts could be in the picture, along with locally heavy rainfall with any stronger storms.

Forecasters from the US National Weather Service put out the alert on Monday afternoon. Regardless, we'll be keeping some decent chances for showers and storms in the forecast today. According to Dominion Energy, almost 10,000 people were out of power in Charlottesville and Albemarle County around 8 p.m. "Damaging winds will be the main threat". I will have more details on WTAJ News at 11.

This time of year, it is always a good idea to have a severe weather plan in place.

A few of those storms could be strong to severe and are capable of producing small hail. Aside from Monday, the potential for severe weather is too low for any mention by the Storm Prediction Center.
