PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The nice weather that we experienced on Sunday is going to carry right on in to the first full week of summer. High pressure will continue to slowly move away, but we can still expect sunny skies and warm temperatures in the low to mid 80s for the next couple of days.
The next chance of rain comes later Wednesday through early Thursday as part of a cold front. Until then, the humidity and temperatures will continue to rise each day.
