In the wake of the hottest weather of the year so far, more seasonable temperatures are in store for the Philadelphia area Thursday and will hold through the weekend.
Temperatures during the middle of June tend to range from a low in the middle 60s F to a high in the middle 80s.
The heat from Tuesday and Wednesday will break on Thursday in the form of episodes of rain and thunderstorms.
Enough dry air may push in from the north and east on Friday to keep rain away and allow some sunshine.
However, a zone of clouds, showers and thunderstorms will reach from the Upper Midwest to the Ohio Valley and the South Saturday and Sunday.
There is a good chance that this zone will bulge to the northeast for part of the weekend, bringing back the risk of showers to Philadelphia on Saturday.
Dry air may try to settle back in across the area on Sunday allowing clouds to break.
The temperature reached 94 Wednesday at Philadelphia and set a new high temperature mark for the year so far. The latest Philadelphia has hit 90 in the summer season was on July 14, 1972. On average, the first 90-degree temperature occurs during late May.
High temperatures will be within a few degrees of 80 this weekend. Which side of 80 will depend on sunshine versus showers.
