A sweltering Independence Day: Heat wave takes over US

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

Other areas may still feel like they're at or above 100 degrees because of the heat index, which indicates what the temperature feels like.

A scattering of storms will occur this afternoon-evening with peak coverage at near 40-50%. Unfortunately, a cold front roaring through the region is what enacts this change and it will very likely fire up some strong, gusty thunderstorms as we trade out the humid air for the dry, more comfortable stuff. There is a slight chance for a shower or storm. Activity should diminish between 7-9 PM drying out for fireworks displays.

The wave is expected to last through Thursday. 5 down, 2 to go!

The release outlined that "temperatures today are in the upper 90s, with heat index values in excess of 100 degrees". Record highs today are 97° in Allentown and 101° in Reading, and records will be threatened, more so in the Lehigh Valley than in Berks County. While it is weakening considerably as it moves towards us, we still run the risk for afternoon and evening showers and t'storms.
