Weekend Weather: Heat Wave Through the Fourth of July

An NWS alert is in effect through the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Just when we though we had a break from the excessive heat, the National Weather Service is predicting that it will be back this weekend and stick around for the Fourth of July.

The daytime highs will be at or above 90 for the next week in the Bucks and Montgomery counties, prompting an excessive heat watch that is set to expire at 8 p.m. Sunday.

The NWS predicts highs of 97, 96 and 96 Friday through Sunday, followed by 93, 90 and 90 Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday's Fourth of July holiday.

Aside from a slight chance of rain Friday, there is a very low chance of precipitation throughout the rest of the forecast.

Here is the forecast for the next few days from the NWS:

Friday: A chance of showers and thunderstorms before noon. Partly sunny, with a high near 96 degrees. Chance of precipitation is 30 percent. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
