Philly: Cooler, Mostly Dry Weather Holds Into Monday

Heat, humidity and heavy rain will remain held at bay around Philadelphia through Monday.

Gone is the heavy rain that poured down on Friday, replaced by mostly rain-free conditions into Monday.

The weather will generally bring good drying conditions. However, there can be very widely separated pop-up showers during late afternoon hours of Sunday.

A stray shower will return to the far northern suburbs of Philadelphia later Monday.

The showers will be brief, spotty and only pose minor interferences to outdoor plans.

One such shower could cross Citizens Bank Park Sunday afternoon, briefly dampening the game between the Phillies and the Cincinnati Reds.

The good news is that the showers will not drop enough rain to renew flooding problems.

Temperatures will average slightly below average with highs a degree or two on either side of 70 F, and overnight lows are forecast to range from the 40s in the suburbs to lower 50s in Center City. Temperatures typically range from the middle 50s to the middle 70s this time of the year.

A more seasonable Tuesday will follow with times of clouds and sunshine and continued low humidity.

The next chance of locally drenching showers and thunderstorms will come at midweek before another stretch of cool weather follows for late week.
