The weather, currently.

The weather forecast for Monday in the City of Philadelphia is for mostly cloudy skies and significantly cooler temperatures. After a hot and steamy weekend, our temperatures will be returning to more normal values for this time of year, starting off around 60°F at sunrise and reaching the mid 70s during the afternoon. Although there won't be a lot of sunshine, we are expecting a dry day, with no rain in the forecast. And it will feel a lot drier as humidity levels will be much lower than they were over this past weekend. Overall, it will be a very good day for outdoor activities.
