We are approaching the bottom of Beryl, which began as a hurricane on Monday but has now developed into a tropical storm.

According to the National Weather Service in Cleveland, the chance of precipitation in Erie on Thursday is 40%, with a high temperature of 25°C and wind speeds between 17 and 30 km/h.

“We’re expecting some increased rain showers in our region of northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania right now,” said Salix Iverson of the National Weather Service in Cleveland. “The northerly flow is bringing much drier air into our area, so that should eliminate the risk of severe weather today.”

For Thursday night, the NWS is predicting partly cloudy conditions with lows of 19 degrees. Light winds will reach about 5 to 7 miles per hour.

Total precipitation of Beryl

The Erie International Airport area received a total of 0.34 inches of rainfall from Monday through Thursday morning.

“(Erie was) definitely on the side of the route where it got less rain compared to some other places, but Indiana and Michigan got even more rain relative to the low pressure system,” Iverson said.

As of 2 p.m. Wednesday, 4.32 inches of rainfall was recorded in northern Indiana.

In Erie it is sunny almost all the time this weekend

For the rest of the week, the NWS predicts the return of sunshine. From Friday onwards, the day will be mostly sunny with highs of around 28 degrees.

The night into Friday will be mostly clear with a minimum temperature of around 20 degrees Celsius.

Saturday will be mostly sunny with maximum temperatures around 30 degrees.

Next week possibly sunny, possibly rainy

Fresh rain is forecast for Erie on Sunday and will continue through Wednesday.

The NWS predicts that Erie will have a chance of showers and thunderstorms early next week, while it will be mostly sunny throughout the day.

“We may expect an active pattern from Sunday into the early part of next week,” Iverson said. “We could see more rain and thunderstorm chances across the region and toward the weekend and start of the next work week.”

Starting Sunday, there is a 30% chance of precipitation in Erie, with thunderstorms possible after 2 p.m. The high temperature will reach around 30 degrees and there is a 30% chance of precipitation.

For Sunday night into Wednesday, the NWS forecasts a mixed chance of thunderstorms, partly cloudy weather or partly sunny weather.

The maximum temperatures for this week are between 27 and 30 degrees, the minimum temperatures between 20 and 22 degrees. The probability of precipitation is between 40 and 50%.

Beach warning issued for Erie

The NWS also issued a beach hazard advisory for several counties, including Erie, on Thursday.

This effect will last until 4:00 p.m. Thursday and poses a high risk of rip currents. Wind and waves cause currents on the lake shore.

Swimmers are advised not to enter the lake as the current can carry them away from the shore along structures that extend into the lake.

Tornado warnings and sightings Wednesday

At around 5 p.m. on Wednesday, tornado warnings were issued for Titusville and parts of Warren County as well as beyond Jamestown in New York State.

On Wednesday afternoon, authorities in western New York State reported that three tornadoes had touched down as remnants of Beryl.

These tornadoes spanned three different counties, including Chautauqua, Eden, and Darien, within two hours. No injuries or deaths were reported from the tornadoes.
