Scattered heavy showers fell throughout the area Tuesday afternoon. But toward evening, the storm front passed and the sky cleared enough for a rainbow to appear and point the way to St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Merion Station.

A powerful storm front that swept through the region Tuesday set off howling winds and potent storms that knocked out power to tens of thousands of Peco customers. Power outages forced the Spring-Ford Area School District in Montgomery County to cancel classes Wednesday, officials said. Peco reported that as many as 50,000 homes in Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania suburbs lost power during the storms, though most power had been restored by 10 p.m. About 8,000 PSE&G customers in New Jersey, including hundreds in Burlington and Camden Counties, lost power as well.

Forget pitching matchups and lineups for now. A major factor for tonight's World Series game at Citizens Bank Park will be the weather. Fans with tickets are advised to check news outlets for word of a possible rainout - and to take along umbrellas and warm jackets if Game 3 is definitely a go. A storm front coming from the South is expected to mean a rainy morning followed by a stormy afternoon and early evening, with possible lightning...

A vicious storm front that raked the Great Lakes region with more than 100 tornadoes and caused scattered power outages in the Philadelphia area yesterday will serve up a soggy summer solstice today. The rain is expected to continue on and off throughout the weekend and into the middle of next week. More than a half-inch of rain fell in the city yesterday, Accu-Weather meteorologist Chuck Jones said. Allentown soaked up more than an inch of rain, and about a quarter-inch was tallied at the shore.

From Indian Summer to Eskimo Winter in one sudden step - that's Weathershock and it hit here with a bang this morning. A storm front moving before the wintry weather blew into Center City shortly after 11 a.m., while a tornado watch was in effect. The high winds, accompanied by sheets of rain and occasional hail, blew down part of a roof at the overseas terminal at International Airport, shattered windows in a building at 16th and Chestnut streets, forcing evacuation of scores of people and downed a number of trees and utility wires.

Two farmworkers racing to haul in hay before last evening's sudden thunderstorms were injured when a bolt of lightning hit the ground nearby, neighbors and hospital workers in Chester County said. "There was all this loud crashing, and we heard one strike right behind the barn," said neighbor Henry Shields, who had been watching the storm with his son from their patio across the street. The two men were taken by ambulance to Brandywine Hospital. One was in stable condition and the other in serious, a hospital spokesman said.

SAY THIS much for the Blizzard of '03 - it kept Mayor Street modest. Gone from the administration's recent public pronouncements were the usual boasts of earlier this winter that all the streets had been cleared - boasts that were laughable in South Philly and other neighborhoods where narrow streets made plowing difficult. Instead, the city didn't overpromise. What it did do was respond well in the face of a storm system that sent others scurrying for the state-of-emergency button.

When Phillies coach John Vukovich stopped on his way to work at 5:45 Saturday morning to pick up Mark Andersen, the first thing he noticed was that the team's assistant trainer was standing in water up to his knees. The second thing was the sparks that went off when a live power line snapped and dropped into the water behind him. This, clearly, wasn't going to be a normal day at the spring training beach. Vukovich and Andersen pressed on. Soon, the water was up to the headlights of the car. After two miles, they had to give up. They pulled into the parking lot of a strip shopping center and called Phils outfielder Pete Incaviglia to pick them up in his four-wheel drive Bronco.

A storm front propelled by cool Canadian air brought heavy rains into the Delaware Valley last night, triggering flash floods in some areas and causing flight delays at Philadelphia International Airport and other airports in the region. The storm was scattered. By 8 p.m., it had dumped 1.24 inches on Willow Grove, yet only 0.22 of an inch at Philadelphia International Airport. Atlantic City had received no rain at all by 8 p.m. The National Weather Service posted a tornado watch, which expired at 9 p.m. without any reports of tornadoes in the area, according to a spokesman for Accu-Weather.

It was only a moment during the long sweep of the three days of the NFL draft, and Chip Kelly was moving quickly, as always, through the NovaCare Complex hallways. After more than a decade in which the football department was led by a man who arrived like a slow-developing storm front, Kelly is on you like a lightning strike from a clear sky. Around the corner and right there, locking in with eyes that betray nothing. Kelly was on the way from the draft room to the auditorium to give an update to the media between rounds, and an organization official trailed in his deep wake, asking whether he needed this or needed that.

Big as an army, aggressive as a storm front, the Mariinsky Orchestra is descending on the United States in an ambitious tour that's audacious even by the company's own go-for-broke standards. While most orchestras are lucky to have sponsorship for a basic-repertoire tour, Mariinsky artistic director Valery Gergiev is bringing a company of 175 to Carnegie Hall for Berlioz's Les Troyens (March 9 and 10) and a comparable contingent to the Kennedy Center for Prokofiev's War and Peace (March 6 and 7)

Five days after Hurricane Isabel raked the region, tornadoes and several violent thunderstorms packing winds stronger than Isabel's caused more havoc and damage yesterday. After investigating damage from strong winds in the Narbrook Park section of Narberth, the National Weather Service announced late in the day that it was indeed a tornado that had hit the borough. The weather service had earlier said two tornadoes touched down in New Jersey - one in Delaware Township, Hunterdon County, and the other in Ewing Township, Mercer County - and a hurricane-force gust of 80 m.p.h.

Doug Glanville was musing. A week ago, the Phillies returned home three games behind the National League East-leading Atlanta Braves after dropping six of 10 games on the road. "It wasn't tragic, but it wasn't successful," the Phillies centerfielder said. "We've been fairly consistent, though. We bounce back a lot. This team has a lot of resiliency. " That resiliency was on display during a 5-1 homestand that ended yesterday at Veterans Stadium with a 3-2 victory over Los Angeles in front of 21,477 fans.

It's gonna be David vs. Goliath in a return match in the sky. A feisty little cold front slinging in from the west is expected to bang into giant Hurricane Bonnie off the South Jersey coast today, and who wins the fight will determine local weather conditions. The truth is, David doesn't have much of a chance against the giant, but the underdog could have the effect of pushing Bonnie further out to sea, thus saving Jersey and the Philadelphia area from a heavier pounding. However, rains might result from both the cold front and the distant hurricane and the area could be in for a good drenching.
