It was another average day across Center City(but the records are for Philly International Airport) with the high reaching 83 after a low of 63; we had sunshine and then clouds in the afternoon once we reached our convective temperature(the estimated temperature that the surface must warm to in order for clouds to develop) hence the cumulus clouds billowing up. Unlike Sunday we stayed dry through the afternoon. Now mind you the average high is 85 while the average low is 66; that's pretty much as good as it gets for late June and the summer season.
Overnight we'll have a few clouds with lows in the lower 60s; Tuesday will be in the lower to middle 80s, but the humidity will be creeping up throughout the afternoon as a warm front tries to push northward. We'll start off sunny, but then clouds will take control of the afternoon(but the rain shall stay to the west).
The warm front will push to the north by early Wednesday morning so we'll be into the upper 80s by the afternoon with showers and thunderstorms popping up as a cold front will push through overnight into Thursday morning.
Showers and thunderstorms will continue through the overnight hours on Wednesday with lows around 70; The Thursday morning commute will start off wet, but the showers gradually come to an end by sunrise with clearing by the afternoon. Highs will be in the middle 80s. Come Friday there will be sunshine and then clouds in the afternoon with a short wave pushing through; highs will be in the middle 80s once again with a threat of a passing light shower or sprinkle.
Looking toward the weekend high pressure will be parked on top of the region so highs will range from the upper 80s to around 90 with sunshine both days; we will have clouds by the late afternoon on Sunday with showers and thunderstorms holding off until Monday.
