    Philly: Sunny Father's Day Weekend to Follow Weekday Rain

    By by Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.

    Sunshine and less humid conditions are in the offing for Philadelphia and vicinity this weekend, but not before more downpours drench the region into Friday night.

    Clouds, high humidity and rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms will rule through Friday evening.

    The pattern will bring an ongoing risk of flash and urban flooding that can greatly slow travel and disrupt outdoor activities. Be prepared for direct and indirect flight delays Friday evening as the storms will reach from Boston to Atlanta.

    A few communities can also be hit by a gusty thunderstorms into the evening hours.

    After the cloudy and wet weather this week, not only dad but everyone deserves a break courtesy of Mother Nature.

    Looking into next week, the weather pattern will bring some of the warmest weather of the season so far with a chance of temperatures reaching 90 F for the first time.

    How hot it gets will depend on the amount of sunshine versus complexes of thunderstorms that may roll in from the Midwest.
