A very typical summertime pattern is in place for Independence Day. It will be a hot and humid day with highs in the low to mid 90s and heat index values near 100°. Scattered storms will develop, mainly in the afternoon and early evening. It will not be a washout; the storms will be hit-or-miss in nature. Some of you will stay dry and hot, others will receive a soaking with frequent lightning possible. It won’t rain all day, and most of the activity will diminish in time for firework displays. Only isolated action is expected to be left, but we’ll have to keep an eye on radar, just in case.
Expect more of the same for the rest of the holiday weekend. Rain will be scattered about, and highs will soar into the mid 90s each afternoon.
