AccuWeather: Excessive Heat Warning
We have sweltering heat that will likely break with storms on Wednesday.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Sweltering heat breaks by Thursday and humidity levels fall.

TONIGHT: A stray storm early especially northwest. Otherwise, partly cloudy, warm, and muggy. Low 78.

TUESDAY: Excessive Heat Warning posted. Our hottest day yet this year and near record territory of 102 degrees. Clouds mix with sunshine, high 99. Peak heat index: 105-110.

If Philadelphia hits 100 degree, it'll be the first time since July of 2012. Through tomorrow afternoon and evening, the potential for strong to severe storms is possible especially NW of the I-95 corridor. Any storms that do develop will likely include drenching downpours thanks to the high humidity and gusty winds.

WEDNESDAY: Excessive Heat Warning continues until 8PM. Clouds, some sun. It's another very hot day and likely the most humid day of this heat wave. An approaching cold front will likely trigger a round of thunderstorms later in the day. Some severe weather is possible, high 96. Peak heat index: 105-110.

THURSDAY: A few scattered storms early. More clouds than sun. The heat finally breaks, and we're turning less humid, high 86.

FRIDAY: What a way to end a week! Mostly sunny skies, less humid. High 85.

SATURDAY: Sun and clouds. Great pool day. High 86.

SUNDAY: Partly sunny and seasonable. A stray shower or thunderstorm can't be ruled out. High 88.

MONDAY: Partly sunny skies again. High 88.
