While sunshine will allow temperatures to rebound early next week around Philadelphia, building humidity will increase the chance of thunderstorms.

The system responsible for clouds and spotty rain during the first part of the weekend will head out to sea on Sunday. However, the pocket of dry air in the wake of the system will slowly erode during the first part of next week.

The combination of higher humidity and systems moving in from the Midwest will allow the chance of showers and thunderstorms from Wednesday on.

High temperatures most days next week will be in the 80s. Average highs for the end of June are in the middle 80s.

For people with outdoor plans and projects the best bet for dry weather is Sunday through Tuesday. There will be a chance of a downpour for the Phillies/Marlins series play on Wednesday and Thursday evening.
