The weather, currently.
Cloudy and cooler with occasional rain
Cloudy and cooler with occasional rain
The weather story for Thursday in the City of Philadelphia is for cloudy skies and cooler temperatures with occasional rain. We will see a one-day break from the much warmer than normal temperatures and dry conditions of the past three days. Temperatures hold in the 50s through the day. Rain will likely begin before sunrise so give yourself a little extra travel time for the morning commute as traffic always seems to move slower in the rain. Precipitation ends around sunset and we will start to dry out during the evening hours. As was mentioned yesterday, we have been abnormally dry recently so we can use the rain. And at least it is not on the weekend.
The cloudy, cool, and wet conditions are truly a one-day event. Much warmer temperatures and mostly sunny skies will return. More details on that in the Friday forecast. — Gary Szatkowski

WATCH: Shaking, power outages, and flashes in the sky as 2 strong earthquakes hit central Japan
A major 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Japan, leaving 2 million people without power and triggering a tsunami warning. This quake comes a little over 11 years after the earthquake and tsunami that devastated the Fukushima region in 2011. 
While tsunami warnings are still in place and aftershocks are expected for the next several days, tsunami waves are likely to only reach a few feet in height. For reference, the 2011 tsunami reached a max of 130 feet.
Early footage and reports of the quake show major shaking and outages as well as a train derailment. Japan, fortunately, has some of the best infrastructure in the world in terms of mitigating the effects of earthquakes.
