Less humid for holiday weekend, pop up showers Friday and Saturday


July 4th looks pretty, pretty, pretty good...

EVENING: Scattered showers, temps in the 70s.

TONIGHT: Scattered showers, mainly before midnight. Cloudy and mild. Low 68.

FRIDAY: Gradual clearing, a stray afternoon shower. Less humid. High 80.

Parts of midstate received some beneficial rain earlier today. Although it wasn’t widespread, some locations reported over .75″ today. We still expect some showers through this evening and early tonight as the cold front moves over the area. Additional rainfall will likely remain less than a tenth of an inch for most areas.

Friday starts off cloudy, but drier air will allow for clearing skies for the afternoon. There will be enough instability Friday afternoon to form a couple of pop up showers in the area. These showers will not produce much and will end closer to sunset.

We expect similar conditions for Saturday with daytime instability causing a few afternoon and early evening showers to develop. These showers will exit weaken by sunset, so any evening fireworks should remain dry.

Sunday will be pleasant with lots of sunshine, low humidity and a high only near 80 degrees! Monday also remains dry, but it will be hot by the afternoon with a forecast high of 90 degrees. Monday will also be the start of another heat wave which lasts into the middle of next week.
