Heat advisories in effect this weekend for eastern Pa.

    It’s going to be a hot weekend in parts of eastern Pennsylvania.

    The National Weather Service issued an excessive heat warning Friday for Philadelphia and some suburbs. The agency also put out heat advisories for the Lehigh Valley.

    The warnings are in effect from 11 a.m. Saturday to 8 p.m. Sunday. Forecasters say Philadelphia will hit highs in the mid-90s on Saturday, with humidity making it feel like it’s more than 100 degrees.

    The city will likely see scattered showers and thunderstorms on Sunday. Highs are predicted to be in the lower 90s, with humidity making it feel closer to 100.

    The heat advisory covers cities including Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton and Reading. Temperatures there are predicted to be a few degrees cooler than in Philadelphia.
