PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- After multiple days of sunny and dry conditions, rain is back in the Delaware Valley Thursday.

A few scattered showers started popping up west of the city early Thursday morning, and a severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued for areas in lower Bucks County, lower Montgomery County and northern Burlington County, until 6:45 a.m.

In the Lehigh Valley, strong storms have reportedly downed trees and utility lines, and thousands are without power.

By 10 a.m., the bulk of the severe weather in the region had moved on, but there was still a chance for some spotty but strong showers throughout the morning. Heading into the afternoon, the skies start to clear and we could see some peeks of sun.

This afternoon's Phillies game, which is set to start just after 1 p.m., could be affected by lingering showers.

Another round of showers is possible late tonight and again early Friday morning.
