Sunny Sunday But Severe Storms Lurking

The evening could be stormy.

For much of Sunday, it’s looking like a near-perfect day. But things could get serious when the sun goes down.

Our high temperature on Sunday will be approaching 70°. Many spots here will be warmer. The sun will be shining. Yes, it’ll be windy but nothing like the last couple days.

However, as the sun goes down, the chances of thunderstorms goes up. And the risk of severe storms is elevated.

This map from National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center puts Schuylkill County at an enhanced or slight risk of severe weather on Sunday:

Keep your eye on the sky if you’re outdoors in the evening hours and stick with the Canary for updates – especially on social media – if any watches or warnings are posted.
