Make that a warning

Severe thunderstorm warning, and this one looks real.

Make that a warning

A rather scary looking cluster of thunderstorms is pressing toward the region, and the entire Philadelphia area is under a severe thunderstorm warning until 8:15 p.m.

The National Weather Service says winds could gust past 60 m.p.h., and a tornado isn't out of the question.

On radar, you can see that it's a menacing looking mast, but it's impossible to say just how much of that will hold together.

Right now, it looks like enough to give just about everyone a soaking.
