Weather Authority: Heat wave breaks on Tuesday with mostly cloudy skies

Strong thunderstorms that prompted severe thunderstorm watches and warning Monday night have cleared the area, leading to a much calmer overnight. 

The passing storms will help drop scorching hot temperatures that have baked the Delaware Valley over the last several days. 

Overnight conditions will remain cloudy with temperatures in the low-80s across most of the region. 

Tuesday and Wednesday will linger in the mid-80s with cloudy-to-partly cloudy skies, before another batch of scattered storms later in the week. 

An early look at the weekend shows a nice summer weekend, with high temperatures in the high 80s with plenty of sunshine.
