5:26 pm
we will look at the height of the crowd we are talking about thunder clouds with this extending well in atmosphere, thousands of feet to create the lift, in these particular storms, up draft and down draft, and then that rotation in the atmosphere that we need to create one of these rotating thunderstorms and tornadoes. so these typically do have a narrow path associated with them but very heavy rain and once again damaging winds so please if you are in the path of the storm go to an interior room of your home and wait until these storms pass. once again tornado warning has been issued for central chester county, doppler radar indicated this finding rotation in a cell, you cane doppler radar indicated rotation right here in central parts of the chester county moving east at 35 miles an hour. we do a track on this we can look at the hail that is possible with this, typically you have a thunderstorm, showed some rotation and then

5:28 pm
windows and we will continue with alerts, on cbs-3 and the cw philly. that washing will continue until 5:45 this afternoon and other counties involved but we're talking about central chester county. steve if we can zoom in on the area we're talking about towns, west chester coatsville downingtown chester, moving toward the main line, and you can see this area that we're looking at when we look at atmosphere the height of the clouds with the lift, associated with the up draft and down draft of the thunderstorm, and that rotation, that we begin to see, it is clear we are looking at chester county, possibly moving toward the east towards montgomery county, and this is the area of that severe, that is doppler radar indicated. we can turn this and we can slice atmosphere in half, how high these cloud rise and give an indication by the cloud height rising 20 or
5:29 pm
30,000 feet. wife say severe cell where rotation begins and that is what the doppler radar indicated on storm scan three. as we continue to track this storm the area of concern through caln, moving eastward a along 76 we saw norristown in the path of the storm also near paoli along the a main line route 76, malvern coatsville thorndale devon berwyn area a a lock route 202, also exton and chesterbrook. if you live in any of these regions a tornado warning is in effect for your area. doppler radar indicated the rotation of the thunderstorm, that could create a tornado.

5:31 pm
is. this is where doppler indicated rotation is. once again as we take a look at our hyper sensitivity reflectivity mode. steve, if we can go back to the doppler mode we can show the exact location, so where you see the wind meet, precipitation meets, that is what we're talking about that clashing of those different direction that is actually create that rotation. so once again this is moving east at about i think it was 45 now 35 miles an hour,
5:32 pm
downingtown is the original location but it will be in tredyffrin by 5:40. lower merion by 5:59. and in the weakened form in philadelphia by 6:13. typically the storm weakens become severe, we still have potential, on the radar when doppler radar indicated originally forms. originated near downingtown moving east at 35 miles an hour. the main line, 76, 202 impacted impacted by this particular storm with lightening, rain so heavy you have to pull over to the side of the road. tornado warning in effect once again for central chester county into eastern chester county, and that is until 5:45 this afternoon.
5:33 pm
we have 3,150,000 people in the path of this and lightening covers the entire county of chester county and moving into a delaware county a and philadelphia county and even extending the heavy rain, and, damaging wind potential into montgomery county and you can see rotation right here as well, to the south so we will keep an eye on that cell as well. so typically we will see heavy rain, we will see thunderstorm form, up draft and down draft create ago this severe weather. it is a towering storm develops then you typically see hail and next thing you would see war a rotation of a then are storm. that is what we have this afternoon. indicated by doppler radar at national weather service tornado warning is in effect for potential tornado in central chester county moving east at 35 miles an hour. right now heading toward tredyffrin, along the main line, of philadelphia, route 202, 76, getting in highly populated area of the schuylkill expressway, heading toward norristown, once again
5:34 pm
these areas affected by the potential, heavy rain and damaging wind associated with rotating thunderstorm possible tornado. that tornado warning in effect until 5:45. we have a few more minutes left of this warning. this is area of concern you can see west whitefield right here extending route 40, also, as you move further east this is hershey mill but very heavy rain. we are looking at rain rates in this region i would say of two to 3 inches an hour, and as you can do rain rate on this three to 4 inches an hour here associated with this. it is not only damaging wind but prolific lightening and potential for some flooding, flash flooding, when you have some heavy rain. typically this is very pro aggressive and fast, but some storms have slowed down quite a bit. let's zoom out and talk about the area once again. we have a tornado warning in effect chester county until 5:45 and you can see all of the highways impact, 202 30,
5:35 pm
route 76, easttown as well, extending toward the main line, and heavier rain will move towards norristown, and 476 into the northeast extension. on storm scan three we have been watching these cells develop. it is a line of showers and thunderstorms, some severe. it is associated with a cool front, warm humid unstable era head of the front. front moving in from the north and west. behind it dryer air. this is line we're talking about extending from montgomery county through chester county down through cecil county, maryland. once this passes through we will lose that impact, or threat of severe weather. right here this is the hail indicating that where the storm actually formed. we have the genesis of this potential tornado over central part of the chester county and you can see these hail indicators that large hail actually formed in these storms as well. so forecast, came from lancaster, into central
5:36 pm
chester county and this is where the storm actually developed, that rotating thunderstorm. there is a signature of the severe weather right through the central part of the county through west chester when the storm formed and continues to move on to the east so verifying this severe cell, could reach tornadic potential. as we move on toward the east you can see areas impacted by this severe cell, along 476 heading toward philadelphia, the time line was for this heavy rain and potential for those damaging wind in the city of philadelphia, by about 6:00 o'clock. still pretty much on track. you can see norristown by 5:40. up are darby 5:58. it will be a severe thunderstorm by that point. philadelphia i think very heavy rain, strong gusty wind within the next 15 or 20 minutes associated with this but we are under a tornado warning and we will keep going with it until the national weather service says that the threat does in the exist any longer. if you look really close you can see where this green meets
5:37 pm
the red through wind, away from the radar that is area have of concern that is where we have the potential for rotation of the thunderstorm. right here near tredyffrin. that is where we could potentially have this tornado at this point and it is moving east at 35 miles an hour. so road, involved obviously are 76, 202 heading toward king of prussia mall, this is area that we are concerned with. we are looking at these towering storms, going very high in the atmosphere so this is the area of concern. that is where a warning is posted for moving east at 35 miles an hour and you are talking about wind that are at least 60, 70, 80 miles an hour or greater when we have this type of storm. as we try to cut atmosphere in half and see it in 3-d mode you can see how high these clouds are these cumulonimbus that form the thunderstorms and miles long. if you took a ruler and extended you are talking about 30 miles 40 miles, 50 miles
5:38 pm
long, when you extend this storm from montgomery county all the way down through chester county and into lancaster county. here you can see how high cloud tops are for these cumulonimbus clouds, 50, 60,000 feet. jet stream at 30,000 feet. that is where planes typically fly. these storms building well into the atmosphere to have the strength to create this type of severe weather. so as we continue to track this storm once again, we have a tornado warning in effect for central chester county until 5:45 this afternoon. you can see the line a very heavy rain associated with this through montgomery county chester county also a severe thunderstorm watch in effect until 11:00 o'clock tonight for potential for a additional severe thunderstorm. severe thunderstorm warnings for bucks burlington, camden and philadelphia, this just came out until 6:30 this afternoon. number of people impact about four and a half million
