More severe thunderstorms were expected to hit the Philadelphia region Saturday, with strong winds and heavy rain making already saturated conditions worse.

The NBC10 First Alert Weather Team issued a First Alert into Saturday for our entire viewing area. The winds bring with them a danger of downed trees and power lines, while the rain may cause road hazards and localized flooding.

Once the risk of storms passes around 10 p.m., expect low humidity and temperatures in the 70s into next week.

Late Friday afternoon, a downpour swept across the region at a fast pace with lots of lightning and low visibility. Flooding was seen in multiple parts of our viewing area Saturday.
