Warm, Continued Muggy

A few thunderstorms lurked overnight to our north and northwest, some of them severe through the night as they dropped some hail or produced some downburts with them.  Those storms are finally (I think) starting to fade as they drift into Lancaster County.  They may persist past sunrise but we'll likely see a bit of a lull in the region through the midday hours.  A few more thunderstorms may pop in the afternoon thanks to the instability in the atmosphere and a bit of humidity.  There probably won't be as many storms popping this afternoon as there were in Central Pennsylvania and New York State yesterday -- coverage looks to be isolated in nature.

Elsewhere, there is some patchy fog around and that will be with us for a few hours.  Nothing too dense and any localized fog should burn off relatively quickly, leaving a warm afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds in the Delaware Valley. Temperatures this afternoon will get into the mid and upper 80's throughout the region, a bit warmer than yesterday as skies are less cloudy than yesterday.
