City Escapes The Severe Storms But What's Next?

Posted: Updated:

Record heat baked the Philadelphia region today with highs around 100° and feels like temperatures 105°+.

A broken line of strong to severe storms affected only portions of the area this evening with heavy rain, dangerous lightning and small hail.

An excessive heat warning is still in effect for Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs overnight. Feels like temperatures will remain above 80° all night.

A cold front that helped ignite the storms today will slowly sink over the area and remain here through the rest of the week.

The excessive heat maybe gone Thursday, but it will remain sticky with highs approaching 90° by afternoon. With the front nearby, a few t'storms are still possible in the afternoon. These storms will be slow movers and can produce heavy rainfall over some areas while other areas may receive nothing.

A wave of low pressure will ride along the front for Friday. We can expect more of a widespread rain with a few t'storms. The winds will swing around to the easterly direction which means temperatures will remain in the 70s all day.

The rain may linger into the 1st half of Saturday before we see clearing skies. It will be less humid with highs in the low to mid 80s.
