Philadelphia Weather: Potential Severe Storms To Hit Delaware Valley, Isolated Risk For Tornadoes, Small Hail

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The same storm that brought deadly severe weather to parts of Tennessee will continue its track over the Northeast tonight. Currently, the Delaware Valley finds itself under a marginal risk of severe weather, as an area of severe storms of either limited organization and longevity, or very low coverage and marginal intensity, is possible across the area.

The storm will push through in waves. Showers will start sometime after noon. A brief break in precipitation is expected before the second wave pushes in this evening.
