Weather Authority: Heat Advisory remains as Elsa begins to move north Wednesday

Temperatures overnight into Wednesday will not cool off by much, as the Delaware Valley looks ahead to another day of extreme heat.

FOX 29’s Kathy Orr says overnight lows will only fall into the lower 70s, as a Heat Advisory remains in affect for much of the region.

Wednesday’s temperatures will jump 20 degrees from the morning lows, into the 90s, while it will feel like temperatures are somewhere between 100 and 105 degrees across much of the Delaware Valley.

Tuesday night, Elsa had regained hurricane strength, as it began to push its way into Florida’s western coast.

It is on track to regain strength Thursday night in the Chesapeake Bay, hugging the Delmarva Peninsula and raking Cape May County. It should be at Tropical Storm strength, bringing high surf, showers and storms, heavy rain, upwards of two inches and high humidity.
