My houseplants are now on a north facing covered porch and the weather outside is pleasant- 80s. Should I bring them back inside when the really hot weather comes in July and August- 100+ degrees?

In general, plants prefer consistency and changes that occur only gradually. That applies to both light and temperature.

As long as your houseplants are protected from any direct sun at any time during the day, they should be okay. When temps get above 80-85 degrees they may start to suffer a bit particularly if they are not watered more frequently. Above 90 degrees, move them inside where it is cooler.
