What to Know
A First Alert for potentially severe storms is in effect from 4 p.m. Thursday until midnight.

Keep your umbrella handy Thursday because you will likely need it before the end of the day.
A First Alert has been issued for strong storms Thursday afternoon into evening for Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania and South Jersey suburbs, Lehigh Valley, Berks County and northern Delaware. The First Alert for heavy downpours, localized flooding and damaging winds begins at 4 p.m. as storms move in from the west.
There were some spotty showers with heavy rain Thursday morning and those will continue to pop up in early afternoon before the main event. During the day, most of the region will just see a combination of sun, clouds and high humidity that will make temperatures in the 80s feel like they are in the 90s.
The line of storms should roar into the western suburbs around dinner time and move off the Jersey Shore overnight.
Once the storms move out, sunny, hot weather settles in for the weekend. Highs could hit 90 each day.
