Severe weather warning for the Philadelphia region until Saturday, 11 p.m.

A heat warning is in effect for what could be a “fairly active” Sunday in the Philadelphia region, with heat indices in the triple digits, according to the National Weather Service.

The state Storm Prediction Center has issued a severe weather warning for Philadelphia and neighboring counties in Pennsylvania until 11 p.m. Saturday. A repeat is possible on Sunday as the atmosphere remains tense, said meteorologists at the weather service in Mount Holly.

Due to the high humidity in the air, it is expected to be quite unpleasant, although the clouds will ensure that temperatures do not rise above 30 degrees, it was said.

But better days are coming on Monday.

Monday, Tuesday and perhaps even Wednesday are expected to be dry, beautiful and temperate with highs around 80 degrees, said Sarah Johnson, warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Mount Holly.

But since it’s summer and we’re in Philadelphia, the heat and humidity are forecast to arrive “just in time” for the Fourth of July celebrations, she said. While it may be uncomfortable, she said, the heat won’t be as intense as it was during the heat wave that ended Monday.

Beyond next week, the U.S. government’s Climate Prediction Center is forecasting above-average temperatures through July 12, with a good chance of above-average warmth throughout the summer.
