Tornado Watch issued for half of NJ on Saturday night

And on Monday, morning showers will give way to increasing sunshine.

The storms will be in the area through around midnight. Half inch hail and winds in excess of 40 miles per hour will be possible with this storm. Hail and/or wind reaching severe criteria is also possible with these two rounds of storms. Southern Jersey is expected to bear the brunt of the action, especially south of I-195.

A warm front will be almost stalled to our south, and upper level impulses or disturbances moving along it will trigger rounds of showers and thunderstorms.


SUNDAY: Cloudy with occasional rain showers.

About a half-inch of rainfall is expected for Sunday. However, if the area ends up ahead of the front, Theodore said temperatures could be around 80 degrees. All of these things don't bode well for temperatures to rise. Fortunately, the rainfall rates look to be light.

Berks and the surrounding area can expect spotty thunderstorms Sunday and slightly cooler than temperatures Saturday, Reppert said. Temperatures will range between the upper 60s to the lower 70s. A cold front may move through by the end of next week dropping temperatures off, but the front may also linger nearby into at least the start of next weekend making for more shower and t-storm chances.
