4th Cast: Mostly dry for parades and fireworks but stormy in between
After a dry but foggy July 3rd for some of us, rain returns to the forecast for the Fourth but it's not a washout. Temperatures return to their warm and humid levels with highs in the low to middle 80s and dew points around 70° making it feel close to 90° at times.
The best chance for any rain on Independence Day is in the afternoon and early evening so morning parades look good but you may need to dodge some raindrops during those afternoon cookouts.
An isolated storm can't be ruled out for fireworks Thursday night, but most of the area will be drying out by that point. Grab the umbrella just in case and the bug spray too. Temperatures drop through the 70s Thursday evening.
The heat is back for Friday with some spots making a run at 90° with similar storm chances to Thursday so scattered showers and storms. Temperatures drop going into the weekend and so does the humidity so expect a very pleasant Saturday and Sunday with just a slight chance for a shower or storm Saturday.
