The rise of the mercury accompanies the threat of an isolated thunderstorm Sunday, Storm Team4 meteorologist Somara Theodore said. High temperatures on Tuesday will be back in the high 70s.

In advance of record breaking heat and an air quality alert due for Monday, Channel 3 issued an Early Warning Weather Day.

Expect more widely scattered storms across the region through Father's Day weekend. The middle of the work week held relief from the heat and humidity with temperatures in the 80s. By the evening, rain and storms move into West Michigan along a cold front. If you can not afford an air conditioner, spending some time each day (during hot weather) in an air conditioned environment affords some protection. South winds could gust as high as 30 miles per hour. This front will help ease the heat for the second half of the week, but highs will still be in the upper 80s to around 90°. We stay dry from Friday and lasting through Sunday, with rain chances looking to increase early next week as we tap into gulf moisture and the upper level ridge weakens slightly.

"The warm-up has begun across central Pa., but the core of the heat and humidity will arrive on Monday", according to the National Weather Service at State College.

Father's Day: Partly cloudy.

Another round of feisty storms is set to fire up on Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening, with areas from eastern South Dakota to the Upper Peninsula of MI at risk.

A few showers and storms will form in the heat of the day.
