The unsafe heat and humidity can also affect people who are accustomed to working in the heat.
High temperaturesThursday in Philly are expected to top out at 89 degrees, but there is a chance a few locations across the region could hit 90.
Another hot and humid day expected today with highs once again in the 90s and heat index values above 100 degrees. Temperatures near - and above - 100 degrees Fahrenheit are combining with thick humidity to present serious health hazards. We're looking at a high of 95.

By this afternoon, dew points inch up into the low 60s which makes the humidity a bit more of a factor. The records for both Friday and Saturday were 100° and Sunday's is 99°.
Philadelphia, which hit 92 degrees on Sunday with a heat index of 105, similarly sounded the alarm to its residents and visitors about the unsafe heat. This will take heat indices in to the upper 90°s. Hot temperatures will last into next week, and possibly right through Independence Day.

Very high humidity will be sustained and even increased due to still wet soils from recent rains, evapotranspiration from a growing corn crop and a replenishing of already high dew-point air flowing into our area from the Plains and Mississippi Valley.
