EVENING: Mostly Sunny, Seasonable. Hi 87.

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear. Lo 64.

THURSDAY: Mostly Sunny & Hot. Hi 90.

Wednesday’s high of 86 degrees is exactly where we should be this time of the year. Any evening plans will enjoy clear skies and dry conditions.

Thursday and Friday will be noticeably hotter. Friday’s high could also be the hottest so far this year with a forecast high of 95 degrees. The humidity will not be oppressive, but it still will feel hot the next two days.

Some model guidance suggests a few storms developing toward Friday evening, although best chances for storms remains Saturday.

This front may linger into Sunday which could lead to stray afternoon/evening storms. It still appears dry for Monday with a warm and muggy afternoon. This front returns on Tuesday, leading to a return of storms for Tuesday afternoon and evening. Here’s the bottom line: July 4th weekend features typical summertime weather. No day looks like a complete washout. We may have hit-or-miss storms to contend with, but the best chance for that to occur is Saturday. We’ll keep you posted!
