July 19th, 2013 Forecast

Outside of an isolated evening storm northwest of the city, another quiet night is expected.  Lows probably won't drop below 80 in Center City, and the suburbs will be rather warm too with mid to upper 70s for lows.

Friday will be another very hot day with most places reaching the mid 90s.  Dew points won't be quite as high as today, so instead of feeling like 105, it'll probably feel closer to 100.  A pop-up thunderstorm or two is possible in the afternoon, but any storms that pop will be spotty in nature so many places won't see one.

Saturday will start off dry, but as a cold front approaches from the northwest, thunderstorms will begin to develop in the afternoon.  Some of these storms could be strong to severe, so definitely keep an eye to the sky if you have plans Saturday afternoon or Saturday night.

Sunday won't be as humid, but you may still notice the humidity, especially during the first half of the day.  A few leftover thunderstorms are possible, but Sunday is still looking like the better half of the weekend.

A weak area of low pressure may spawn some thunderstorms Monday and Tuesday, but Wednesday is looking like a beautiful day with seasonable temperatures and comfortable humidity levels.  Another cold front will approach our area on Thursday, bringing us another chance for thunderstorms.
