After a brief cooldown, very warm and humid weather will bounce back in Philadelphia in time for the Labor Day weekend.

High temperatures around the region will rise into the 80s on Saturday before soaring back to around the 90-degree mark on Sunday and Labor Day.

An increase in humidity, which will especially be noticed Sunday and Labor Day, will contribute to even higher RealFeel® temperatures.

For people heading to the beach, surf conditions will be much better than recent days on Saturday as Cristobal departs. However, an increase in winds at the coast will stir up surf some for a time on Sunday.

Much of the time will be free of rain this weekend. However, there will be spotty showers and thunderstorms popping up in the building warmth and humidity Sunday and Labor Day.

The afternoon hours will be the most active time of these days.

Indications are that there will be more warm, rather than cool, days through the middle of September, which will be a bit of a switch from most of the summer.
