For those of you wishing for summer weather, be careful what you wish for. Dangerously hot conditions will be possible across much of the region Monday from mid day through early evening. Try to limit outdoor activities during the hottest portion of the day. If you must be outside, take frequent breaks, wear light weight, loose-fitting clothing, and drink plenty of water.

The shooting was one of two that occurred in Philly Friday night. Only 15 minutes before the shooting that took Walker's life, a gunman opened fire on the 3800 block of N. Percy Street.

Police say two male suspects wearing ski masks and dark clothing fled south on Percy Street toward Butler Street after the shooting.

    Allissa Jackson painfully recounted the last call she made to her son, 16-year-old Symir Walker. "The last call I made to my son was to tell him to come home because I had heard two pops," Jackson said. "But it didn't sound like gunfire but I just wanted him on the block, in my company where I could see him.

Plenty of sunshine today with afternoon temperatures rising into the 80s for most of the area. The wind will turn more southerly this afternoon, and this will allow for some cooling along the coast.

Don't know about you, but we are loving the current weather! Temperatures will be on the rise through Monday, providing a break from the cool, wet weather we've generally been dealing with over the past few weeks. In fact, most places are forecast to top 90 degrees on Monday. Return flow will bring more moisture to the region and higher dew points starting on Sunday, so we will likely be dealing with high heat indices by Monday. Have a great weekend everyone.

Storms last night produced an interesting outflow boundary that moved south across New Jersey over night. An outflow boundary (a.k.a gust front) is essentially a boundary between cooler air descended from a thunderstorm that sinks and spreads outward due to to its higher density than surrounding air. The radar detects insects and/or dust that are lofted into the air by the wind along this outflow, which is why you can see it as a line on the radar loop here.
