The End of the Heat Wave Before the Next One

Heat Advisory remains in effect until 8 p.m. tonight.

The Heat Advisory for Schuylkill County continues into a second day as does the heat wave that’s persisted since at least the Fourth of July.

However, it appears this will be the last day of the second heat wave for Schuylkill County this year.

And that break from the heat wave appears it’ll last a whole two days.
