York, PA -
The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for southern York County after Doppler radar indicated rotation in the atmosphere Friday afternoon and evening.
But John LaCorte, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said Saturday there were no reports of tornadoes in York County.
He said a trained spotter reported to the weather service that a funnel cloud was spotted northeast of Shrewsbury. He said the service issued a warning about the cloud.
LaCorte said there was evidence of "sporadic" high winds but nothing more severe.
Mark Paquette, a meteorologist for AccuWeather.com in State College, said the combination of high and low pressure fronts was responsible for high winds across the state. He said a tornado was reported in Ligonier, which is about 40 miles east of Pittsburgh.
"Obviously, it was a pretty busy weather day," he said. "There were numerous tornado warnings. But radar can't tell if it (weather rotation) actually is touching the ground."
Paquette said that high pressure over Greenland will cause the temperature over the next week to "remain cooler than normal with lots of clouds and possible afternoon showers."
"This weather pattern will be slow to move out," he said.
According to York County 911 logs, roads flooded in low- lying areas and emergency crews were dispatched to removed debris and downed trees from roadways.
Signs of flooding - muddy and rubble-strewn roads - and winds - some broken tree branches - testified Saturday to the storm's passing.
