AccuWeather: Nice again today, hotter weather coming

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- It's sunny and nice again today with low humidity, light winds and a warm high of 80. At the Shore, highs will be in the low to mid-70s. There's a moderate risk of rip currents again in the ocean today. It could be even worse this evening and will probably be moderate again on Friday. Swimming near lifeguards will continue to be essential today. You should avoid the ocean this evening.

TONIGHT: Clear skies this evening will give way to an increase in clouds overnight. It will still be rather cool and comfortable with a low of 62 in Philadelphia and some suburbs dipping into the upper 50s. A shower is possible overnight in coastal counties.

FRIDAY: A weak area of low pressure will slowly drift past our coastline Thursday night into Friday morning and this could trigger a few light showers during the morning hours, mainly in coastal counties. After that, some sunny breaks are possible, but this will be a much cloudier day than what we experienced on Wednesday and Thursday. It's also a tad warmer with a high of 82. It probably begin to feel a bit humid during the afternoon and evening.

SATURDAY: Step outside and say "Welcome back!" to a more typical summer combination of heat and humidity. Look for hazy sunshine sun all day long with our high rising to 88 and more humid air settling in for an extended stay. A stray thunderstorm can't be ruled out during the afternoon and evening, but most areas remain dry.

SUNDAY: This is another day of hazy sunshine and continued humidity, along with a hotter high of 90. There's another slight chance for a spotty shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon.

MONDAY: Clouds and sun will share the skies. It's still hot and humid, with a high around 92. Another spotty shower or storm can't be ruled out, but again, we're mainly dry.

TUESDAY: Clouds mix with sunshine. It's hot and humid yet again with another high near 92. Another very spotty shower or thunderstorm is possible, but it's only a small chance.

WEDNESDAY: It's still hot and humid with a slightly better chance of a spotty thunderstorm. Look for a mix of clouds and sun, otherwise, with our high nearing 90.

THURSDAY: Temperatures may ease a bit, but it's still a warm and muggy day with a high of 86. Some showers and thunderstorms can't be ruled out, especially during the afternoon and evening.
