4TH OF JULY WEEKEND: Thunderstorms Saturday, Warm and Dry Sunday and Independence Day

Two-thirds of the holiday weekend looks great for 4th of July festivities, barbeques, etc. However, for Saturday, all eyes will be on the sky for showers and strong to severe thunderstorms.

It’s going to be a very steamy day with a few rounds of showers and thunderstorms. There will be some dry stretches, and even a little sun at times, but definitely be “weather aware” if you’re outside.

Some thunderstorms may be strong or severe in the afternoon and evening with damaging wind gusts, hail, lightning and downpours.

Skies dry out from north to south Saturday night with some beautiful summer weather for Sunday and on Independence day. The humidity will drop, and skies will become mostly sunny. Inland highs reach the mid 80s with upper 70s at the shore.

While Saturday evening’s fireworks are at risk of cancellations due to stormy weather, the other nights’ will have great conditions for viewing area fireworks shows.
