Pop-Up Showers & Storms Today

There are showers and thunderstorms around the area this morning.  There is some light rain falling in the city, but there is steadier rain north and east of Philadelphia.  The showers are moving toward the north and east, but more showers and thunderstorms are expected to pop up this afternoon.

Look for a mix of sun and clouds today, and the more sun we see, the better our chance for pop-up showers and storms this afternoon because the sun will help create instability in the atmosphere.  It won't be raining all afternoon, but the showers and storms that develop will be scattered in nature.

By noon, our temperatures will be in the mid 60s.  Highs will reach the low 70s in Philadelphia, the upper 60s north and west, and the mid 60s at the Shore.
