If the numbers were scores on tests, they'd be a dream: 95, 96, 96 and 92.

But those are the highs expected in the Philadelphia region for tomorrow, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Four days in a row, all hotter than any days so far this year. Sounds more like a nightmare.

Certainly more scorchy than this afternoon's expected 83.

The humidity may also make your skin crawl. The dew point gets creepy when it's 65 - but it won't get that low for days.

Sunday's forecast says the dew point could reach 72.

Basically, that means there'll so much moisture in the air, that if you chilled it to 72 degrees, water droplets would form, creating fog or dew.

Make they should rename it the ewww point.

Because of the humidity, the heat index - a measure of how hot it feels - could "top out around 100 degrees during the hottest part of the day" on Saturday and Sunday, according to the Excessive Heat Warning issued by the weather service.

"It is important to note," the warning continues, "that temperatures at night may not drop below the lower to mid 70s ... particularly in the highly urbanized areas."

A Bermuda high parked off the southern Atlantic coast is the source of this queasy-bake-oven scenario.

If Sunday does hit 96, it would break the record of 95 set in 1999.

The records for the other days: Saturday 98, Monday 98, Tuesday 97.

Wednesday and Thursday could bring some relief, with projected temperatures back in the mid to high 80s.

No day in May or so far in June even hit 85, as measured at Philadelphia International Airport. April 19 was 2008's hottest day, hitting 87.
