PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Wednesday marks the 13th day of the year where temperatures have topped 90 degrees. This number is pretty low, considering back in 2010 we had a summer boasting FIFTY-FIVE ninety-plus degree days!

But it’s been a hot and humid afternoon, and now it’s time to bring in heat and humidity’s favorite companion: thunderstorms!

A cold front will slice across the Delaware Valley this evening, bringing the risk for showers and storms. While any thunderstorm can bring the threat for dangerous lightning, wind and hail, the severe threat remains relatively low across the area today as most of the energy for severe weather is focused across portions of New England. There’s a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for the extreme northeast corner of PA, but nothing yet in effect for our area. Thunderstorms will form across the region into this evening.

Behind this front, though, we’re right back to summer comfort! Skies clear tomorrow and humidity will drop, with highs only in the mid-80s, and we’ll stay there Friday as well!
