July 18th, 2013 Forecast

Humidity will become more noticeable later tonight as dew points rise back up to around 70.  Lows will drop into the upper 70s in Center City and generally into the low to mid 70s in the suburbs.

Thursday will be similar to today for high temperatures, but it will feel hotter since dew points will be around 70 instead of in the mid to upper 60s.  It will be hazy with highs in the mid 90s, but it will feel like 100 to 105.

Friday will feel even hotter than Thursday with dew points rising into the low 70s, so heat indices will likely exceed 105 in spots.  There's a small chance for a pop-up thunderstorm Friday afternoon.

A weak cold front will slide through from northwest to southeast on Saturday.  There will be scattered showers and thunderstorms, some of which could be strong to severe.  This will be the last day of heat wave # 4.

Humidity will lower on Sunday with the lowest humidity by the late afternoon hours.  Temperatures will be right where they should be this time of year, in the mid to upper 80s.  More seasonable weather will follow for the start of next week with low humidity.  Our next rain chance will come on Wednesday.
