Phildelphia's Thursday evening commute will likely be marred by severe weather that will bring rain and winds to the area, for the third night in a row. 

According to the National Weather Service, Philadelphia was expected to see as much as a half inch of rain as well as hail, gusty winds, and heavy rain. At least the city doesn't have to deal with a chill — temperatures should steady in the high 70s. The worst of the thunderstorms were expected to hit Philly before 3 a.m., the NWS forecast, with rain showers continuing through the early morning. 

The region's wonky weather started on Tuesday, with a tornados touching down in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Even New York City dealt with tornado warnings this week. Fortunately, a break is in sight on Friday and Saturday, with skies expected to clear and typical spring weather due across the Tri-state area... until Saturday night, that is.
