    Sweltering Heat to Hit Philly This Week

    In the wake of a weekend with low humidity and below-average temperatures, heat and humidity will make a return in a big way this week to Philadelphia.

    "The hottest weather of the season so far will spread from the Ohio Valley to the mid-Atlantic states Tuesday into Wednesday," Expert Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson said.

    Monday's warmth will be followed by high temperatures in the low 90s F Tuesday.


    The high humidity accompanying the heat will push AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures to near 100 during the afternoons.

    Philadelphia has not reached 90 so far this year. The latest in the summer season the temperature hit 90 for the first time was on July 14, 1972.

    Limit your outdoor activities and seek shade or air conditioning when possible during the peak of the heat. Keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water.

    Relief will also come from some cooling showers and thunderstorms which will be most prevalent during the afternoons and evenings Tuesday and Wednesday.

    A high pressure system over the Southeast will be responsible for the upcoming hot weather. The extreme heat will gradually fade later this week as this high begins to weaken.
