It was a comfortable start to the weekend, but now the heat and humidity have returned. Dew point temperatures, which measure the moisture content in the atmosphere, are very high right now in the low 70s.
Temperatures remained on the hot side this weekend with highs in the mid 90s but at least humidity levels remained low.
It’s been a record breaking weekend as far as high temperatures go. Philadelphia set new records on Friday (103), Saturday (101), and Sunday (98) but the heat indices made it up to 115 at times.
After a warm but comfortable past few days, the weather pattern returns to a hot and humid pattern for the Delaware Valley. Today reached 90 degrees, day one of at least eight 90+ degree days in the forecast.

The holiday weekend has remained hot with high temperatures in the upper 80s to around 90 so far. There will not be much change for the holiday itself as the heat continues. An approaching cold front tonight has triggered off some showers and thunderstorms across the region.

The last official weekend of spring brought temperatures above average in the mid to upper 80s. Humidity levels remain on the comfortable side through the weekend and will continue into the new workweek.
The past few days have been nice and comfortable temperature wise with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. Humidity levels also have been low as a cooler air mass has settled into parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
Last year on Memorial Day we hit 93 degrees and it looks like we will do it again this year.
By Justin Drabick: In less than a week, another tornado touched down in the viewing area.
After the unsettled weather last week, the pattern has shifted to more summer-like for this week. Warm temperatures, humidity, and shower and storm chances return to the forecast this week.
After being spoiled with some stellar weather last week, this week will be the opposite. A large upper-level storm system situated over the Ohio Valley is cut-off from the jet stream.
The upcoming days will be a good time to spend some time outside if you can. Some great May weather is on tap with sunshine and highs in the 70s.
The overall weather pattern this weekend kept temperatures right where they should be for this time of year.
