Philadelphia weather: Marginal risk of severe weather Thursday, in advance of beautiful start to weekend

It was a gorgeous, but warm day for May as a great warm-up for the holiday weekend.

Overnight lows will only fall into the 60s, which is definitely warm for this time of year. Clouds will begin to move in during the overnight hours, as well.

There is a marginal risk for isolated severe thunderstorms Thursday, and the threat is for damaging winds and hail. The stormy weather should be upon the region around 7 a.m., or so. We should see a break from storm activity during the midday hours, only to see possible scattered storms in the late afternoon.

But, the sunny, dry weather is back on Friday to kick off Memorial Day weekend.
