    A surge of warmth is coming to Philadelphia and is just in time for Memorial Day weekend as millions in the area will be spending time outdoors.

    Dry weather on Sunday will replace the showers and thunderstorms that dampened the city at the start of the holiday weekend.

    Warmer air will also begin to invade the region Sunday as highs top out at around 80 F and sunshine spreads over the area.

    The mercury will continue to rise for Memorial Day, topping out in the middle 80s. Humidity will remain low, preventing the holiday from feeling muggy.

    Anyone who has outdoor activities planned on Monday will want to keep them as another day of sunshine is expected.

    For those heading to the beach this weekend, keep in mind water temperatures are still chilly this time of the year and could pose a risk for some individuals. Surf temperatures range from the upper 50s to the lower 60s. There is the potential for cold water shock with surf temperatures this low.

    Showers and thunderstorms will return on Tuesday as the warmth holds and humidity increases.

    The heat will ease at midweek.
