Are you ready for a heat wave? The Philadelphia region is coming off a lovely Fourth of July holiday weekend. Get ready. Things are going to heat up at the start of this week with a possible heat wave in the forecast.
The NBC10 First Alert Weather team is tracking high temperatures that are expected starting Monday. Ninety-degree temperatures three days in a row constitutes a heat wave.
"We are definitely going to go back to a possible heat wave, which would be heat wave number two," said NBC10 First Alert Weather meteorologist Tedd Florendo.
"Thunderstorms are back in the forecast midweek again although not as severe as last week. Humidity will also be present but also not as oppressive as last week."
On Monday, the temperature may reach 93 degrees. It will get even hotter Tuesday at 94 degrees and Wednesday is looking like it may reach 91 degrees. If so, this week would make heat wave number two this year.
