the golf course. >> opinion nicking a great day. we'll crank up the heat this week. it is mid june. >> about that time. yeah. we'll make a run at 90 degrees but still very pleasant outside right now. here's how it looks at center city. looking at the ben franklin bridge. pretty quiet. just a few clouds. it's still warm. levels are low. keep the windows open. compared to last night at this type it's much warmer. almost a little bit on the cool side yesterday at this time. but now we're 9 degrees warmer this time yesterday in philadelphia. eight in allentown. eight in reading. so that's the sign of that warmer air moving on in coming in slowly. 73 still at the airport. 68 reading. 65 allentown. so some nice comfortable temperatures for the suburbs again some spots could dip down into the 50s again. the dew point temperatures which tells how much moisture is in the atmosphere gauges our humidity levels still very low. for the middle of june. we're in the low 50s. you don't see that a whole lot this time of year. again the dew point measures how
much moisture is in the atmosphere the higher the number the more humid it is. currently we're at 53 degrees. that's comfortable. tomorrow we start to bring it up to about 60 degrees. so what does that mean to you? it's still not bad. but you'll start to feel the diss it's really once you get about 65 or higher that's when you really start feeling the humidity and once you hit 70 that's when it's oppressive it looks like we'll see dew point temperature in the lows as we head into tuesday, wednesday and thursday. so just get ready for that. if you don't like the humidity. high pressure over us. keeping us dry. maybe a few fair weather clouds moving through one weak disturbance coming through the chicago area. we can get a shower or thunderstorm later tomorrow night. but it will be very scattered. jet stream well to our north. so that means the warmth from the south starts to expand northward and eastward and the jet stream remains well to the north for tuesday, wednesday and thursday. so you add the sunshine, big ridge in the jet stream this time of year, you are looking at a good shot of reaching 90 degrees especially away from the water. tomorrow still in the mid to
upper 80s high pressure slowly builds offshore this brings more of a south wind. brings that humidity up a little bit but then it's hot and how mid on tuesday. 90 degrees for the high temperature for the inland spots could be a scattered shower or storm. same deal or wednesday. hot and humid typical afternoon scattered showers and storm chances. that extends into thursday as well. we're dry for monday, though. plenty of sunshine. monday night there's that weak disturbance coming in eight, nine, 10:00 o'clock or so there could be a scattered shower or storm in some spots. again into the afternoon, tuesday and wednesday. same deal humid air mass in place all it takes is a little bit of sunshine you could get that pop up shower or storm. not an all day wash out. comfortable still overnight mostly clear 62 for center city. suburbs could get down in the 50s. very warm on monday. mostly sunny skies. 88 degrees. the humidity not high just yet. really got to wait until tuesday to feel that. at the shore, looks good. 80 degrees for the air item which are. a lot of sunshine. very high uv index have the
sunblock around. ocean water temperature right around tent degrees. so here's the extended forecast. if we hit 90 this week that will be the first time this season. 91 for the high tuesday and wednesday. i think wednesday and thursday best chance to see a scattered shower or storm during the afternoon. by the end of the week we start to cool it down a little bit. closer to average. mid 80s and, of course, this saturday morning at 6:51 we start the official summer seas season. >> and here come the 90s. >> you knew it was coming. >> just in the nick of time. thank you very much. lesley, that nba game. >> i know you've been following it. >> yes, i have been following. >> game five of the nba finals the heat with their backs against the wall. so can the spurs clinch the championship? the phillies bats struggling again. against the cubs this time all the highlights from today's game [ male announcer ] ortho crime files. illegal hosta-taking. ♪ homeowner draws the line, ortho deer b gon. safely keeps thieving deer and rabbits away from your plants.
