Weather

EYEWITNESS WEATHER (WBRE/WYOU) — A strong cold front is moving our area Wednesday bringing afternoon and evening thunderstorms— some of which have become severe.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued until 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Frequent lightning and heavy rain has been observed with these storms.

The main threats are torrential downpours and strong winds with the remaining storms.

One viewer sent us a video of hail in Ledgedale, Wayne County.

Pittston Avenue, at the intersection with Kane Street, in Pittston was closed Wednesday evening due to some flooding. It came during the height of the rain.

The water has receded, and the fire department tells Eyewitness News the roadway will soon reopen.

Showers and thunderstorms will taper off Wednesday night. As the front moves east, it will get a touch cooler for the end of the week.
