The main story weather wise will be the warm and windy conditions developing on Saturday. Wind gusts up to 45 mph are expected through the late evening. A line of showers and storms moving through during the evening will bring the potential for damaging winds and a couple brief tornadoes.

The National Weather Services data on Wedneday's tornado:

East Nottingham Township/Lower Oxford Township/ Upper Oxford Township, PA, Tornado

Rating: EF-2
Estimated Peak Wind: 115 mph
Path Length /statute/: 6.09 miles
Path Width /maximum/: 350 yards
Fatalities: None
Injuries: None

Start Date: Sep 01 2021
Start Time: 4:15 PM EDT
Start Location: East Nottingham Twp, Chester Co, PA
Start Lat/Lon: 39.77/-75.97

End Date: Sep 01 2021
End Time: 4:22 PM EDT
End Location: Upper Oxford Twp, Chester Co, PA
End Lat/Lon: 39.85/-75.93

An embedded supercell in a quasi-linear feature produced a
tornado near Oxford, PA. A path of damage began in crop land near
the intersection of 5th Street and Waterway Road. Tree damage
continued northeast of here.

Significant damage occurred in the Wiltshire Development. On Slate
Hill Drive, one house lost a southeast facing exterior wall.
Another house lost a significant amount of siding and a portion
of the roof. Tree damage continued in a northeast path. At Hickory
Hill Road, there was damage to the roof of a commercial
outbuilding and a recreational trailer was flipped on its side.

Sporadic tree and crop damage was noted from drone footage (this
portion of the path was inaccessible by vehicle) continuing to the
northeast. A metal storage building at a business along Reedville
Road had wall and roof damage. Further northeast there was damage
to turkey pens near the intersection of Baltimore Pike and West
Branch Road.

Additional tree and power pole damage continued in a northeast
path. The last damage noted along this continuous path was
exterior wall damage to a farm outbuilding and crop damage along
Street Road near Route 10. Sporadic tree damage was observed near
Route 10 and Ewing Road, but this does not appear to be in a
continuous path from the other damage, so this may have been
caused by straight line winds.

The National Weather Service would like to thank Mr. Lou Ruh for
his assistance with this survey.
