Northeast Heatwave Ending With Storms?

Today will be the last day of the heatwave affecting central Pennsylvania among other places. It’s been hot here but not record breaking with highs in the low to mid 90’s each day. The humidity hasn’t seemed to be as bad as it could have been either but that’s not really a bad thing.

My mom who lives near northeast Philadelphia said her car thermometer read 108. That seems a bit high but that area always seemed to run hotter in the summer. North East Philadelphia airport’s high temperature was 99 yesterday. I though for sure they would crack 100.

I see that the storm prediction center has us in a moderate risk for severe storms again. They should develop along and ahead of a cold front that’s in Ohio this morning. This front should move across Pennsylvania today and tonight. It looks like a decent shot at strong storms. The storms are sure to bring plenty of lightning with so much heat to generate the updrafts.
