Thunderstorms generate large hail, strong winds; More rain likely this week



PITTSBURGH - Severe Weather Team 11 Meteorologist Scott Harbaugh said that the National Weather Service canceled early a severe thunderstorm watch that had been in effect for much of the Channel 11 News viewing area.

Harbaugh said that a line of showers and storms moved into the region early Tuesday evening. Some of the storms produced gusty winds and large hail.

As the system progressed through the region, in fact, the NWS issued severe thunderstorm warnings for select locations. NWS radar indicated a severe thunderstorm capable of producing quarter-size hail and potentially damaging winds in excess of 60 mph.

Lightning was also a concern. Motorists were advised to use extreme caution.

There is a 30 percent chance of isolated storms on Wednesday. The high temperature will be around 70 degrees and the low temperature is expected to dip into the mid-50s, Harbaugh said.
