Heavy Rain, Searing Heat are on the Way, Forecasters Say

If you thought Tuesday was a hot one in Hellertown, local weather forecasters would like you to know “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.” Tuesday’s high in the low 90s will be mild in comparison to the heat wave that’s predicted to affect eastern Pennsylvania and other northeastern states this weekend, when meteorologists are warning that the mercury could soar well into the upper 90s.
