May 30th, 2013 Forecast

Summer's first stretch of heat is upon us as 90's are in the forecast through Saturday.  While it will be hot each afternoon, heat index values will not be terribly higher than the projected high temperatures as dew points will be held in check around the region.  In essence, what you see for high temperatures is about what you'll get for "feels like".

Tonight's warmth will be accompanied by chances of some scattered thunderstorms around the region, especially over the next several hours.  Check out twitter and Facebook for updates this evening as any storm that does fire could be severe to the north of the city.  Once the thunder threat diminishes after sunset, a warm night is in store for the region as lows will drop to around 70, with 60's outside of Philadelphia.

We're projecting 92 for a high tomorrow in the city under mostly sunny skies.  Most everyone around the region ends up in the 90-93 range. There could be a storm or two that pops in the afternoon to the city's west and northwest but these will be isolated and confined away from the Philadelphia metro.
