    If you’re looking for some relief from Saturday’s intense heat in Philadelphia, you’ll have to wait at least a little longer.

    On Saturday, the city announced an Excessive Heat Warning had been extended through 8 p.m. Sunday night.

    The city says excessive heat can be dangerous for several groups of people, including; seniors, people with chronic medical conditions, pregnant women, small children, those who work in a high heat environment and those engaged in strenuous physical activity.

    The city’s “Heatline” remains activated – for heat related questions or help, call 215-765-9040.
