More summer-like conditions will return to the Philadelphia area for a brief time before a front pushes through the region during the latter part of the weekend.

The high temperature on Sunday will climb into the upper 80s with an increase in humidity.

"However, the warmer and more humid air will provide fuel for thunderstorms, which can be strong Sunday into Sunday night," AccuWeather Meteorologist Mike Doll said.

One of those storms may be disruptive to the end of the Philadelphia Phillies' current home stand Sunday afternoon (1:35 p.m. EDT scheduled start) against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Citizens Bank Park.

The higher humidity will stick around into Monday before exiting the region on Tuesday.

Sunshine will be the rule into the middle part of the week, with daytime highs in the low 80s and overnight lows in the mid-60s.
