A Few Showers, Mostly East Of City, This Evening

A quick update on the shower and thundershower activity that's out there.  Cool air aloft and some residual instability from yesterday's storm system are combining to fire up some showers in parts of the region.  All of this is pushing south and will continue for a few more hours before weakening towards sunset.  It's your typical summertime instability shower and thundershower.

Best chances of these are EAST of the city as it appears areas north and northwest of Philadelphia will remain shower free and thus the city (after the shower that's moving through at 4:30 PM) and points west should have a dry run of things the rest of the evening.  However, Lower Bucks and anyone east of Route 206 will have at least one but perhaps two rounds of showers the next few hours.

A gust of wind to 30 or 40 mph can't be ruled out nor can a few rumbles of thunder. After sunset, all of this diminishes and the balance of the night should be quiet.
