While temperatures and humidity levels will fluctuate from day to day this week, unseasonable warmth will continue into Saturday around Philadelphia.

The combination of temperature, humidity, sunshine, light winds and other factors will result in AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures above 90 most days of the week.

The most comfortable portion of the week will be the middle part, when levels are slightly lower but still above average for early September. Temperatures typically range from a low of 65 F to a high of 82 during the first week of September.

For people who have gotten used to a lack of extreme heat this summer and want another cooldown, much cooler and less humid air is forecast to reach the area on Sunday.
