'Extreme, dangerous' heat to continue this week, meteorologists say

'Extreme, dangerous' heat to continue this week, meteorologists say

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the area, which will remain in effect until 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Temperatures there have been in the mid-90s since Sunday, and the heat will continue through Thursday, to highs around 93, before dropping back to average, or 77 degrees, on Friday. "We might have periods of showers and thunderstorms as well when we get into the middle part of next week and that might help suppress some of that heat".

"Heavy rainfall and gusty winds will be the main threat with any strong storm", the service said.

Any storms will be rather isolated and most likely during the late afternoon and early evening hours.

A cold front is approaching from the northwest, firing up a few thunderstorms as it inches closer.

These showers should be widely scattered moving in from the west in the afternoon. Communities along the coast will see slightly lower temperatures because of a sea breeze, the weather service said. While the high pressure will make it hard for any t-storms to fire, a weak cold front will try to approach from our northwest Tuesday bringing a slight chance for an isolated PM t-storm, mainly north and west of the Lehigh Valley. Highs on Friday only reach into the mid 80s.
