A variable range of temperature across the area as of 7am. While its 73 degrees currently in Philadelphia, most other areas are in the 60's. There are even a few cooler spots in the upper 50's, mainly in the Poconos and interior sections of New Jersey. Temperatures will climb yet again to the 90's today. Skies will be mostly sunny with a light breeze from the westerly direction.
Its pretty much the same old story at this point with the heat and there is no end in site. In fact, we'll be nearing the 100 degree mark by the end of the week and an excessive heat watch in in effect for the city and surrounding counties in NJ and PA for later in the week. This is going to be a long heat wave and we are only half-way through it, so stay cool and keep any strenuous activities or exercise to the early morning or evening hours.
