(Undated) -- March is coming in like a lion for most of Pennsylvania, with severe weather moving across the state and bringing everything from tornado warnings and hail to flash-flood watches and thunderstorms.

A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 5:00 p.m. today for Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry and York counties.

The National Weather Service in State College says the thunderstorms in southwestern Pennsylvania will shift eastward throughout the day --  with potentially damaging winds of 60 mph or greater in some places.

 Damaging winds are also in the forecast.

Isolated tornados are possible around the state.
