    Philly: New Cool Push to Settle in Thursday, Friday

    Yet another push of cooler and less humid air will settle into the Philadelphia area prior to the weekend.

    While Bertha will still generate some rough surf and the risk of locally strong rip currents into Thursday along the Atlantic coast, the system was losing tropical characteristics.

    Spanning Thursday through Sunday, each day will bring at least partial sunshine, cooler-than-average air and lower-than-average humidity levels for early August. Typical highs this time of the year are around 87 F.


    A system is forecast to spread some rain and thunder across the Ohio Valley and southern part of the mid-Atlantic this weekend. There is a chance that rain could move into and overwhelm the dry air around southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and northern Delaware if this system travels farther to the north than now expected.
