PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — After several days of pleasant weather, the heat and humidity make a return for the second half of the workweek in the Philadelphia area. Here is what’s next:

We have two rounds of rain headed our way on Thursday and Friday. The region desperately needs the rain but unfortunately not everyone will see that come to fruition.

The first round will be triggered by a weak cold front that will generate widely scattered thunderstorms and some possible downpours Thursday afternoon and evening. A few gusty storms are certainly possible, with locally strong winds being the main threat.

Friday’s cold front will trigger scattered thunderstorms across the region.

One thing to note, when we call for scattered storms, that also translates to not all neighborhoods will see rain.
