High temperatures in the middle 90s are expected Sunday. Highs will be around 90 once again on Monday, before falling into the upper 70s on Tuesday. While the morning is starting off pleasant, southerly winds through the day will bring a return to the heat and humidity.
Summertime weather means a fairly steady forecast: hot days, humid nights, and a daily chance of some hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms. There is a chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm as well, which may only make it more uncomfortable. The heat wave is not expected to have a significant warming effect on the water because it is still early in the season, Mott said.
If it feels like it's been really hot, you're not imagining things.
Some relief from the oppressive heat and humidity will come in the way of scattered showers and storms on Tuesday and continued storm chances through mid-week.
THIS AFTERNOON: Partly to mostly sunny and warmer. Temperatures will be hotter than average and humidity levels will remain rather high but not extreme.
The weather service says dry and pleasant weather will prevail today, with mostly sunny skies expected. Record highs in the low to mid 90s may also be challenged in Scranton (93), Philadelphia (96) and other areas. The heat index could be into the upper 90s and near 100 degrees. Our brief heat will be squashed to the south, bringing a drier, more comfortable brand of air back to northern OH by the middle to latter half of next week!
We'll keep this heat going for the holiday weekend, too.
