Storms and showers march through Berks County

Reading Eagle 29 July, 2021 - 05:15pm

For most of Berks, there were only a few downpours and rumbles of thunder but in northeast Berks — the Topton-Maxatawny areas — there was a brief tornado warning and severe thunderstorm warning. 

Those warnings ran from 4 to 4:30 p.m. and expired without incident. However, as the storms progressed east they became more severe and several tornado warnings were issued by the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, N.J.

The tornado watch started about 2 p.m. and was scheduled to expire at 9 p.m.

All the bad weather was due to a vigorous cool front crashing into humid air across Pennsylvania.

The Mount Holly office said that the cool front would finally push through the region during the overnight hours.

The AccuWeather forecast for Friday is for sunny and dry conditions with a high temperature near 80 degrees and a northwest wind. Then expect cool conditions Friday night as the temperature drops into the mid-50s by daybreak Saturday.

The early September-like conditions are expected to continue Saturday with sunshine and temperatures a few degrees cooler, according to AccuWeather.

Then a few degrees warmer on Sunday with the wind switching to the south and more humidity, AccuWeather says.

The start of the workweek looks pleasant.

A later band of showers cruised southeast through the western side of Berks between 6 and 7 p.m.

Some of the rainfall totals at 7 p.m. included 0.33 inch at Reading Regional Airport, the weather service site in Berks.

Beyond that, other totals included Harlem, 0.72 inch; Boyertown, 0.53; Mertztown and Schuylkill River at Berne, 0.51; Mount Penn summit, 0.44; Cornwall Terrace, 0.39; Lincoln Park, 0.32; and Blue Marsh Lake, 0.17

National Weather Service meteorologists from the Mount Holly, N.J., office checked spots, mainly to the east of Berks.
