From 2 pm until 10 pm our area will be hit with isolated showers and thunderstorms.

According to the National Weather Service it is also around this time that we could see a tornado risk as winds from the South East really pick up to the East up to 30 miles per hour.

These tornado risks will take place mainly over southern NJ & Delmarva. In other areas, we could see wind gusts that could bring down trees and power lines.

This threat of a tornado will only last from Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night. (roughly about 11 pm).

Between 10 p.m. to 4 a.m is when some of the severe parts of the storm will die down.

The heaviest rainfall is expected late Wednesday afternoon through the overnight hours.

The bulk of the rain will fall just Northwest of the I-95 corridor. These totals in our area range from 2-5 inches. It looks like Allentown could see the higher end of the rain totals.

Widespread river flooding is likely to occur if storm total rainfall forecasts are realized.

The last time a tornado touched down in South Jersey was last year in Marmora.

We toured the damage from the Marmora via drone and on the ground. Check out the footage below.
