Damaging winds and large hail possible

severe thunderstorms possible in schuylkill county on thursday march 31 2022

There’s a chance of strong to severe thunderstorms in Schuylkill County on Thursday.

Morning rain showers and clouds will eventually break by early afternoon, but as that happens, it’ll cause some instability and that could touch off some severe storms in the area, according to National Weather Service.

Right now, the biggest threat from these storms could be damaging winds. These are expected to be straight-line winds but gusts could top 60 mph in some instances. And the passing storms could drop a half-inch of rain or more on Schuylkill County in some spots.

Large hail is also possible during these storms, NWS believes.

As far as timing of the storms, it seems more likely that they’ll spawn after 4 p.m. and could last until about 11 p.m.

The forecast high temperature for Pottsville on Thursday is 64 degrees with a low temperature of 45 degrees.

When the storms move out, colder air moves back into the coal region. Strong winds will persist into Friday, when the high temperature of 48 degrees is expected, with a low of 29 degrees.
