Surface Map with Cold front across PA

A line of showers and thunderstorms develop ahead of a cold front moving east-southeast Saturday evening.

SATURDAY EVENING STORMS:  A cold front moving south from Lakes Erie and Ontario toward the mid-Atlantic Coast brought widespread thunderstorms across central Pennsylvania Saturday afternoon and evening. Storms carried locally heavy rain, gusty winds, and a quick 20 degree temperature drop. As it continues to move south and east, this line of showers and storms will weaken overnight and allow some drying by Sunday morning.
