What to Know

  • Sunday was another day with dangerous heat in the Philadelphia region with temperatures that felt like the triple digits.
  • Storms moved into the area late Sunday afternoon into the evening.
  • Temperatures will remain hot and generally dry until the end of June.

A cold front made its way through the Midwest eastward towards the Philadelphia area, leading to storms Sunday evening.

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning was in effect for the Philadelphia region.

There were plenty of clouds Sunday ahead of a cold front that moved across most of the northeast. There was also plenty of moisture with dew points in the 70s which made temperatures feel above 100° for most areas.

The cold front approaching from the west broke through a moist and unstable environment.

Way in advance of the front, storms began developing as early as 5 p.m. But most of the storms occurred after inner time, producing heavy rain in some areas.

There was also a slight chance for tornadoes in parts of our area though the threat was not substantial.

By late Sunday night, most of the storms moved out of the area.

As the front crosses the region after sunrise on Monday, we could see another round of showers or storms down at the coast and for southern Delaware.

Humidity will decrease a bit on Monday and the heat will decrease a bit with highs getting into the mid to upper 80s for most neighborhoods.
