The heat was on this weekend with the hottest temps we've had in the Philadelphia region so far in 2022. Severe storms along a cold front brought an end to the heat Sunday evening.
The Heat Is on This Weekend
A HEAT ADVISORY was in effect until 6 p.m. Sunday in Philadelphia and surrounding communities as temperatures climbed into the 90s again. The humidity made it feel like mid to upper 90s.
Philadelphia matched the record high of 95 Saturday. Records highs were also matched in Georgetown, Delaware, (94) and Atlantic City Airport (93), according to the National Weather Service.
High temperatures Sunday were in the lower 90s in most neighborhoods, except right along the Jersey Shore, where the sea breeze kept temp cooler. Though high temps Sunday didn't get as high as Saturday, the humidity made it feel just as hot.
