Cue the Complaining: A Heat Wave is Coming to Philadelphia

Next week is going to be brutal.


It has been a very mild summer here in Philadelphia, but if AccuWeather’s predictions for next week are correct, you may not want to break out the fall wardrobe just yet.

AccuWeather is reporting four consecutive days of 90-degrees or more, starting on Sunday. Three are needed to make it an official heat wave. And while AccuWeather says to expect a 90-degree day on Wednesday, the first day of school for many kids in the region, we’ve seen some reports predicting a high of 97 for that day. Yuck.
