Possible Heat Wave Heats Up Philadelphia Region

Expect temperatures to hit the low-90s Tuesday with even hotter days in the 10-Day Outlook. (Published Tuesday, July 5, 2016)

What to Know

  • Expect steamy temps this week

  • Thunderstorms could move in later in the week

Once the rain cleared Tuesday morning, things began heating up.

Higher up in the atmosphere an area of high pressure will form, which in turn will heat up our air allowing for temperatures to warm into the 90s.

We’re looking at a stretch of 90-degree temps possibly starting Tuesday afternoon, then Wednesday through Saturday.

Highs will mainly be in the mid-90s Wednesday to Saturday with the possibility of afternoon thunderstorms.

Dew points should stay fairly high, around 70 degrees, which makes the air more humid. So expect a hot, humid rest of the week with afternoon storms starting Thursday.
