Temperatures will reach the mid eighties today which is not to be as hot as yesterday, across most of the state. With warmer temperatures, pollen indexes rise. Here is a look at your temperature and pollen forecast for today. Temperatures will remain in the mid eighties throughout much of the day as storms make their way through later this afternoon and evening. Temperatures will drop late tonight and into Friday.

We are continuing monitoring thunderstorms that will be moving in to the area. The main question will be the timing. The Storm Prediction Center has backed off a bit on the areal coverage of severe probabilities, with areas northwest of Pittsburgh, having the chance of seeing storms with damaging winds and large hail. Timing would be during the late afternoon and evening, with the risk expected to end by midnight with the loss of daytime heating. We will continue to update the forecast as it changes. *images are property of the NWS*

Severe weather is likely in areas that are in the yellow and dark green. Strong heating will result in weak to moderate instability by afternoon and isolated to scattered strong to severe storms will be possible. A slight risk has been placed for the Northern corner of the state which could bring damaging wind, hail, and severe thunderstorms. A marginal risk has been placed for much of the center of the state, including the Pittsburgh area and areas north of the city, and a thunderstorm risk (mostly isolated, non-severe storms) has been placed for much of the eastern half of the state. Thunderstorms may be isolated and or may pop up

Thunderstorms are expected across much of the Upper Midwest on Wednesday. However, uncertainty is too high at this time to pinpoint where, or how much, strong to severe thunderstorm activity may develop. Storms should remain non-severe for most of Pennsylvania as of right now. The outlook could change from now until Wednesday and will be updated IF changes do arise. Be sure to keep an eye open for any updated forecasts that may be written. Outlook map for Wednesday, May 17, 2017. Subject to change. *Map is property of NOAA, NWS and SPC*

In order to protect people and systems that might be at risk from space weather effects, we need to understand the causes of space weather. The sun is the main source of space weather. Sudden bursts of plasma and magnetic field structures from the sun’s atmosphere called coronal mass ejections (CME) together with sudden bursts of radiation, or solar flares, all cause space weather effects here on Earth. Space weather can produce electromagnetic fields that induce extreme currents in wires, disrupting power lines, and even causing wide-spread blackouts. Severe space weather also produces solar energetic particles, which can damage satellites used for commercial communications, global positioning, intelligence gathering, and weather forecasting.
