July 16th, 2013 Forecast
It won't matter outside of a semantic argument -- it's hot, humid, and if you don't have air conditioning the heat presents a dangerous stretch of weather.
We do have a chance of an isolated storm or two around this evening, mainly north and northwest of the city, as a weak trough slides on through. There's little relief with the trough other than helping shove some of the tropical moisture south of the city. Temperatures tonight drop into the 70's everywhere, warmest in the city where Center City may just barely get below 80 by morning.
Tuesday's highs range between 94 and 97 inland, with the Shore in the mid or upper 80's with a mostly sunny sky. With dew points in the 60's, heat index values will be a few degrees higher and generally hang out close to or just above 100.
Wednesday ends up the hottest on air temperature, with Thursday or Friday feeling the worst in terms of heat index as humidity creeps a bit higher. Temperatures could crack 95 through Friday before a cool front slides down towards us, bringing an increased thunder threat on Saturday.
