PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) --Dewpoints have jumped into the upper 60's to low 70's this afternoon and, if you have been outside you know, the muggies are back! Temperature warmed to 87 at 2PM, but clouds have rolled in and will likely put a damper on reaching 90 for today. So, the beginning of heat wave #6 will likely need to wait until tomorrow---don't worry we have plenty of 90s left to come if you feel we missed out today.
TONIGHT: Look for a partly cloudy overnight with a warm, muggy low of 74.
FRIDAY: A cold front comes through around midday/early afternoon so we start off very muggy and then dial back the humidity some by late afternoon/evening. Overall though it will be a very humid day with a high of 93 feeling more like 100. Only a very spotty t'storm is possible with the cold frontal passage as it should come through mainly dry.
SATURDAY: The departing front, being so weak, does very little to drop weekend temperatures. However, the humidity will not be as bad. Look for a partly sunny and hot Saturday with a not-too-sticky high of 91.
SUNDAY: It's a very warm afternoon with moderate humidity and a high of 91. If we indeed manage to hit 90 or better for the third straight day, this will mark our sixth heat wave of the year.
MONDAY: Clouds mix with sun. It's warm and more humid. The high is 92.
TUESDAY: Clouds mix with some sun. It's steamy with a thunderstorm or shower possible in the afternoon or evening. The high is 91.
WEDNESDAY: It's still hot with clouds and sun and a high around 91
THURSDAY: Look for a partly sunny day and another hot high around 90.
