Heat alert in effect for the Philadelphia region on Monday with temperatures likely to reach 100 degrees

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – We once again hit the mid-90s in the Philadelphia area on Sunday with many locations seeing wind chills around 100 degrees.

Overnight we will have humid conditions and partly cloudy skies. Monday will start with temperatures around 20°C. A bit of fog is possible in places early on Monday, so keep that in mind for the morning commute.

A high temperature advisory is in effect through Tuesday, meaning heat and humidity will combine to produce a wind chill of between 100 and 102 degrees. While rain chances may not give us much chance for relief, there is a slight chance for a sudden shower or thunderstorm on both days. Severe weather is not likely.

In the middle of the week, Beryl remains The once-powerful hurricane is now a tropical storm headed toward the Texas coast. It is expected to strengthen again and become a Category 1 hurricane shortly before making landfall overnight near or just north of Corpus Christie.

Heavy rain and flooding are the primary concern, with up to 10 inches of rain expected in some areas. Beryl will quickly move northeastward and weaken into a remnant low pressure area Tuesday morning. That remnant low pressure area will merge with a cold front and head into the Ohio Valley Wednesday and eventually bring rain and thunderstorms to the Philadelphia area Wednesday night into Friday. The heaviest rainfall looks to be on Thursday.
