Philadelphia weather: Active weather night as storms move into the region

Thunderstorms are rolling across the Delaware Valley Wednesday night and will extend into early Thursday morning. The storms are bringing heavy rain, damaging wind gusts and some hail.

Comfortable and sunny summer conditions will continue Saturday, but the chance of rain will increase over the weekend.
