Most of the Philadelphia area is now under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 10 p.m.

The watch area extends from Massachusetts and Vermont down to Virginia, and it includes all of our local communities except Cape May, N.J., and Sussex County, Delaware.

The weather service says scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph are possible along with isolated large hail events to 1 inch in diameter.

Before dinnertime, the coverage and intensity of the storms was gradually increasing across the region, with moisture in the air and afternoon heating. Conditions will remain favorable for storms for several hours.

A watch means conditions are favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce tornadoes.
