    Philly: Storms, Humidity Return for Start of July

    Storms and high humidity will no longer be absent from Philadelphia as the new week starts and June gives way to July.

    As the high pressure that kept Philadelphia dry and comfortable this weekend departs, the door will open for an uptick in humidity on Monday as temperatures rise to the upper 80s.

    The warmth and humidity will continue to build for Tuesday, when temperatures will return to the 90-degree mark.

    Despite the steamy air, dry weather will hold around Center City through Tuesday. However, a spotty thunderstorm will dot the northern and western suburbs each afternoon and evening.


    A tropical steambath will be in full force on Wednesday with highs in the lower 90s, oppressive humidity in place and AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures soaring to the century mark.

    Such heat will prove to be challenge for those with respiratory issues and those engaging in manual labor.

    The steamy air will also help fuel showers and thunderstorms Wednesday, mainly in the afternoon, and Thursday as a cold front approaches.

    The front may be slow to clear the Northeast coast, potentially leading to a lingering and disruptive shower or thunderstorm for Independence Day.


    The one benefit of the front will be to steer any tropical system that develops off the Southeast coast away from the Northeast.
