In Philly, there's a slight chance of rain in the morning, while at the Shore, there's a chance of showers in the morning and afternoon. The high climbed to 99 degrees Sunday, breaking the old record of 93 degrees set in 2006.
Wednesday Night: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.
Low clouds and patchy fog will slowly break, and we'll get some some peeks of sun in the morning, but expect a mainly cloudy AM. Barring several caution laps during the race, we're hopeful any rain chances should hold off until after the checkered flag drops. The chance of showers and thunderstorms is expected to decrease to 20 percent by Thursday evening, which should be mostly cloudy with a low around 73.
Duluth also set a new record high Saturday at 92 degrees breaking a record high of 85 degrees set in 1978, which was tied in the notably warm May of 2014. We keep a low thunderstorm chance for next Friday with highs in the low-80s.
